    Pros

    It's a great cause and you'll meet some very wonderful people. I could not speak more highly of the families and volunteers I worked with to help "cure cf".

    Cons

    The pay and benefits are average although once you are set at a salary there is not much advancement from there- you might get a 1-2% raise a year, if you're good...
    Senior Management at the Northern New England Chapter uses threats and scare tatics to achieve goals and benchmarks. Weekly staff meetings were a screamfest and usually ended in tears. Everyone is in a constant state of fear and panic. If you try to sit down and "talk it out" with senior management at the chapter, you will be accused of not being good at your job and put you on a "performance improvement plan" which basically meant that if you retaliated again, you wouldl be fired. There were no checks and balances which allowed for an evil dictatorship senario to occur. Employees were scared to loose their job if they spoke out or contacted HR about the situation because "everything comes back to senior management." A number of the employees I worked with at the time were on anti-anxiety medication and my "ah-ha" moment came when I had a full-blown anxiety attack and was told i needed to start taking anti-anxiety medication as well. I cannot warn someone enough- don't take this job for any amount of money!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good leadership and you will not experience such a high turnover rate. Initiate a checks and balance system to prevent a terrible situation. Also, listen to your employees when they alert you of a hostile situation- if 5 people quit in an office of 6 within 18 months, you must know something isn't right.

    Pros

    Great cause, wonderful staff, wonderful volunteers, cool events, opportunity to learn more in an entry level position than at a major corporation, opportunity to interact with high level business execs

    Cons

    Long hours, the volunteer is always right & you are not allowed to stand up for yourself in any way shape or form (even if everyone involved knows the volunteer is wrong or malicious) little boundaries between personal & professional life

    Advice to Management

    Respect our vacation & personal time, allow staff to take their sick time, hire more staff, recognize staff accomplishments, set more realistic budgets & goals
