I have been working at Habitat for Humanity as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

People are very friendly there, and very patient and nice to interns and even volunteers. But people there are also very professional.

Cons

No much lunch option around the office area. It may take you 10 mins driving to get a good place for food.

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot, no pressure to get things done, worked at my own pace. It helped that I had a construction background, and I got along well with the management. If it were possible to make a living working there I would still be there.

    Cons

    Construction work- was sometimes difficult. Sometimes I worked alone and they would have a lunch for the volunteers and they would forget to invite me.

    Advice to Management

    None - the management are a great bunch of people

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Mission and Purpose. A good idea when practiced properly.

    Cons

    People in charge of my affiliate simply were very under-qualified and unethical. Some people more interested in self-congratulation than in improving processes and moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified people with knowledge and experience of the area they are in charge of. Do not promote attitude of "being wonderful and doing good works." Promote actual work ethic and concentrate on improving the actual business of being a non-profit. Do not merely give lip-service to the mission but embody it.
