Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

In general Habitat for Humanity International employees good people who care about the mission and are focused on engaging on the right partners.

Cons

Senior Management is an issue. They are more concerned about their own individual agendas and how they feel they can achieve the mission rather than uniting so that they accomplish this as a team.

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

    Pros

    Fascinating community (working with volunteers to women prisoners to drug and alcohol rehab volunteers).

    Cons

    As an AmeriCorps member, pay was horrendous. There's no worse feeling than putting your college degree to work for minimum wage. No matter what the experts say, underemployment is worse than unemployment.

    Physically draining, heavy workload, hostile manager.

    Advice to Management

    Try to brainstorm ways to utilize the full resources of your full-time staff, as well as full-time AmeriCorps members in a holistic way. If someone has a master's degree (as did one of my co-workers), try to find a more meaningful use of their time than caulking windows for 7 hours per day.
