Hire people and allow them to do their job without too much interference from upper management

    "Scattered workplace but truly feeling like you've made a difference"

    Former Intern - Volunteer in Norristown, PA

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Our office space was cramped which in turn allowed for great camaraderie between coworkers. Attending open houses and spending time with the families who were moving in, really solidified the impact you were making.

    Cons

    Management was scattered which lead to much miscommunication and frustration. The space we were using as an office was small and cramped, the computers and equipment outdated.
