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

Pros

Creating community change
Flexible working conditions (working from home in bad weather, flex start/end times to accommodate family commitments)
Great people to work with!

Cons

Constant "political" considerations/tensions to consider
Seems like the only thing that is constant is indeed change
Don't feel like there is a lot of upward mobility from current position

Advice to Management

Great job overall.

    I have been working at United Way full-time

    Pros

    Can't really think of anything positive to say about this place other than their stated mission is admirable. How well they carry out their mission is another topic entirely. My experience was in Phoenix, AZ, so it may not be applicable to all locations.

    Cons

    Lots of interdepartmental infighting over handling of grants and funds. No real cooperation among team members. They're accounting is also a complete mess. I will never donate another dime to this organization.

    Advice to Management

    You are the problem.
