I have been working at Public Outreach Fundraising full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Regular raises, opportunity to grow in the company, working with great people. The employees seemed happy and satisfied.

Cons

The public fund raising is grueling, and you are outdoors rain or shine. If you don't make your quota after a while, even due to person problems or illness, you might get fired. I spoke with two employee who told me that happened to them.

Advice to Management

There could be some improvements made with the training. Maybe people in the evaluation period should be given a little more time to shadow their supervisors. One of the employees in the eval period said he would like more training on closing the sale. I noticed that a few times I needed help with closing with good, potential monthly donor, the supervisor didn't see me flagging him or her. I was only there three days.

    Standing in the street, asking for people to donate money

    Training took only one day and mainly teaching how to build rapport with potential donors. but no background solid information was given about the project that we were raising funds for
