    Pros

    Wonderful community and work culture. Strongly encourages a continuation with your own education.

    Cons

    Like any fundraising job, constant interaction with alumni asking for money can be difficult. The hours are a little funky so it's hard to feel connected to the office.

    Advice to Management

    Telefund should probably be managed by an adult, not an undergraduate student. More GU employees of Development should put forth an effort in connecting with the student callers.
