I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Endless room for growth, both personally and professionally.
Unique opportunity to learn a wide-range of skills (public relations, grant writing, volunteer recruitment/management, government relations, donor cultivation)
Access to individuals who share a passion to make a difference in the community.

Cons

Long hours and a lack of resources (limited staff, ever-increasing needs within the community) quickly lead to burnout.
Board of Directors can be challenging if the organization does not have a clear vision for the future.

Advice to Management

In order to attract the talented and committed individuals that the nonprofit sector needs to succeed, invest in your staff (competitive salaries, benefits, etc.).
