I worked at Jewish National Fund full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Important mission
Passionate donors
Engaged leadership
Nice colleagues
Fair benefits
Excellent company contribution towards retirement
Travel to Israel

Cons

Total lack of leadership at Senior Management level
Long hours for relatively low pay compared to industry standards
Lack of any appreciation or recognition of staff efforts
Cowtows to certain donors while ignoring others who deserve better
Questionable ethical behavior

Advice to Management

Senior Managers needs to take a hard look at their own ccurrent management style.
They need to retrain senior management on how to lead and treatt employees. This will help eliminate low morale and discord amongst employees, make the organization be that much more productive, and reduce the high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Winter Fridays because of Shabbat mean we get out at 3 PM during November-March

    Cons

    No sense of work-life balance; had us come in to the office during hazardous weather conditions; very few growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Please consider your employees' health and safety as well as sanity in making decisions about office closings. In addition, learn to hire managers who think before they speak.

    I have been working at Jewish National Fund full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    During lighter times it's much less stressful to be there

    Cons

    Extremely low salaries, upper management does not treat employees well, no advancement opportunities, donors end up running the organization with the attitude of "they are always right" so you need to always be on call - no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better, according to their responsibilities so when they work hard and devote time to the position, they feel appreciated.
