I worked at Public Outreach Fundraising full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Astonishingly supportive company with a great culture of allowing innovation by employees. Many leadership opportunities. Benefits plan after relatively short wait. Travel opportunities. Bursaries.

Cons

Public Outreach does not pay high salaries, and their termination process needs fixing. Can be hard for some to maintain the required level of performance.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Public Outreach Fundraising full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PO represents a number of awesome charities. Fundraisers work door-to-door, street or mall depending on the campaign. Coworkers are typically young, energetic, enthusiastic, idealistic and fun. It's good ground floor training for any sort of sales and if you stick at it, you will become very comfortable talking to all sorts of people. And that's a good thing.

    Cons

    It's very challenging to meet weekly "sales" quotas. Random one-time donations are not the point, what PO and their clients want are ongoing monthly donations and you have to sign up a certain amount per week.
