I have been working at Telefund part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours, awesome campaigns, like minded people in the workplace, you can move up to be a trainer or supervisor or a director

Cons

It's really not as bad as some people have reviewed on here. Yes, the atmosphere can get charged and intense - we talk to people about gay rights, women's rights, etc and all of that is highly exciting right now. The only con I will say is that they evaluate pay way too often, every 80 hours.

Advice to Management

Hire more people! I like it when the office is buzzing and you have to talk a little louder to people on the phone.

    I have been working at Telefund full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -work with other likeminded progressive people.
    -learn to manage a diverse staff both as a team and individually
    -fun office environment
    -work on behalf of leading progressive organizations, sometimes they visit the office.

    Cons

    -long hours
    -fundraising is never easy and goals are set high
    -the diverse staff at times can be challenging

    Advice to Management

    All members of the Telefund team work a ton of hours. Most people stay because they believe in what they are doing AND they enjoy the challenge. My advice is to continue to promote those that work the hardest and give small perks (they make all the difference).
