Pros

The pay is better than almost all jobs the University offers. While the management can be annoying, they are students and former callers who can connect with their employees. They are almost always supportive and even when you screw up treat you fair and with respect.

Cons

Maturity level of some supervisors can be a little distracting or annoying. Program Assistants who have had the job for a while tend to think they are more that fifty cents an hour better than the callers. Treat employees differently based on their personal lives with employees out of work. There is always a veil over the real reason things are done the way they are.

Advice to Management

If the UI Foundation truly cares about Telefund, and I am not sure they do, they could help it out by upping the funding as most of the equipment is at least 15-20 years old. The management and students working in the call center will fluctuate in terms of quality, but overall management is good.

    I worked at UI Foundation full-time

    Pros

    I developed some great mentors and friends while at the Foundation who were invested in seeing me succeed. There is a true passion for the work being done here. I found work life balance to be a priority as well.

    Cons

    I would sometimes run in to an 'old boy's club' mentality or resistance to change that could be very frustrating at times.
