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

Pros

I work for 211 and my supervisors and managers are very understanding and friendly. They are more than willing to work with employees dealing with family situations.

Cons

High Stress work since I handle calls from crisis, suicide, and financially distressed clients. However, if ever you feel stressed they are always encouraging employees to take a moment for themselves.

    I have been working at United Way full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love advocating for change and improving the community in which I live and work and raise my children.

    Cons

    It is very hard to communicate what we do because it is so broad. Because of this, United Ways across the world have seen a huge decline in their campaigns. To make up for the losses, few United Ways are transitioning away from the "fundraising style" and moving toward a "community impact" style of operation which focuses more on the issues in the community, and losses are being made up with grants.

    Advice to Management

    Let's get our mission more narrowed down!
