    Pros

    United Way provides a great work environment. The people are professional and engaged, and the benefits very good for a non-profit organization. The mission and goals, to make lasting change in the lives of people, provide a reward beyond the compensation.

    Cons

    Past situations that have cast negative light on United Way, primarily due to actions of individuals, create an unfavorable perception by some members of the public with whom we are trying to work. Because this is a non-profit, and working to keep overhead costs at a minimum, most employees could likely earn more working in the corporate sector.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication open to employees and continue to utilize staff as a resource for helping to set and implement strategic plans. There are decades of management, marketing and fundraising experience presenet in the rank and file that can help make the best decisions for the future of our organization, and the people we are working to serve.
