Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Habitat for Humanity part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Volunteers are very giving of their time, want to help the organization

Cons

Paranoid management, directors always fighting with each other, Executive Director does nothing about the issues in the organization, my first week there 4 people quit, mission is never talked about

Advice to Management

Focus on why we are there-to build houses for low-income houses, not build up your egos. I worry for the future for this local chapter.

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    provides good benefits, a diverse work group, community interaction is high, ability to move up (which could be slow), locations around the US and world.

    Cons

    Low wages, at times it is hard to get full time, mission is to help families in need but they fail to help their employees in need. I think they could build smaller and more affordable homes.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of those that work within the organization and affiliates. You should even count those as families served.
