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

Pros

Great people who care about the mission. I consider them friends as well as coworkers. You really do feel like you're doing good in the world when you put in a full day's work.

Cons

Pretty bad dysfunction. Skeptical of technology and change. Cultural split between Atlanta and Americus headquarters is a real problem

Advice to Management

Shift headquarters to Atlanta. Embrace change and new technology.

    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.).
