  1. "The most disorganised company ever"

    I worked at Future Fundraising part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The rate of pay was really good at £7- £8 an hour
    My team were lovely and really helped each other
    It's never boring as you're going to different locations
    Uniform was provided
    Flexible hours

    Cons

    Very poor communication with the management to employees
    We weren't told anything about what we had to bring at the training day, so turned up on first day without things we needed
    An unreasonable expectation of the amount of sign ups that the team could get which resulted in them firing the whole team 5 days after we were all hired
    Didn't receive any payslips or P45
    Doesn't feel like a legit job
    Even when there was a storm with torrential rain we still had to walk around knocking on doors which resulted in me getting the flu

    Advice to Management

    Sort your company out, it's an absolute shambles.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Future Fundraising as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff were nice although the management were dreadful. I only worked on contract and was self employed but I quit upon realising the lack of opportunities. I am used to more formal work places (government) but it was refreshing to be in a more relaxed environment. This still does not excuse the cons.

    Cons

    Did not pay employees on time and was very inefficient at conveying messages to employees. There is no hierarchy involved which adds to further inefficiencies and inconsistencies which can strain the employees performance drastically. They lie about the pay and delete hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest. If employees provide adequate services for you, you should compensate and encourage them. This will allow for maximum efficiency in the workplace. Also organise your staff and finances. It really does not help employment efficacy at all.

    Pros

    The pay isn't bad, and most of the people I worked with were fairly pleasant. The environment is very encouraging, and it seems to depend on the manager you get.

    Cons

    Despite the job taking up about fifty hours a week, it only pays for twenty-five, inflexible upper management, centralised structure.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible; if a person is making you a profit, there's no need to fire them because they are not making you enough of a profit.

    I have been working at Future Fundraising full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really interesting charity campaigns, excellent new starter and ongoing training, opportunities to work overtime and great benefits scheme

    Cons

    Not any major downsides that I can think of, they offer different hours to suit your circumstances and are really flexible which is great.

    Pros

    Street team leader did seem to find the job worthwhile and was passionate about it

    Cons

    No training given as I was told 1 is not enough new staff to be worth it. Left entirely alone on street with no practical training all day on first day

    No communication; about location of work each day, details of the job skipped over in interview even when questions asked, emails not answered, never received a response/acknowledgment when I quit

    Purpose of job purely to get direct debit sign ups, talking to people about the charity and providing information to those interested in their work but under sign up age for example was discouraged as 'time wasting'

    Hourly rate suddenly reduced after interview

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff, they're the most important thing

    Pros

    Disorganised, chaotic environment with an incompetent management team so easy to take advantage of and fairly flexible with working schedules

    Cons

    Attitude of management team is rude, demoralizing and patronizing.
    There is little to no progression available and no training opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people with more respect and encouragement, also it might be an idea to reward performance with something other than alcohol
