    Pros

    Because of it's international reach and size, UW provides better than average resources than most nonprofits. It's a great way to connect with Fortune 500 companies if you're located in a big city, and allows you to see how to connect with corporate philanthropy.

    Cons

    Definitely lots of hierarchy in the leadership structure because it functions very corporate-like. Lots of very structured process that is not always amenable to change. Sort of got a "do what's always been done" kind of philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees all the way down the line. I never felt like the senior management's doors were open to me.


  2. "Accounts Exec."

    Pros

    Flexibility to work independently. Everyone is vey nice and helpful. Work environment is healthy and encouraging. Work hours are reasonable.

    Cons

    Managers and leaders are old-school, not willing to take risk, which is reasonable for this type of company.
