    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity for less than a year

    Pros

    learn skills that might not learn elsewhere involving construction of houses, great mentors and teachers for skills you might not already possess, fun working environment

    Cons

    physically requiring depending on the day of the build, find out what your build day is to know if you can handle the physical requirements of the day. otherwise you will be left with cleaning duties (if you're okay with that this is still awesome in regards to meeting new people and helping out the community and people in need)

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

    Pros

    Strong brand and mission Comparatively Stable Non-profit Stress free work environment depending on department Wonderful colleagues innovative programs

    Cons

    extremely low pay/poor benefits package undeveloped/outdated procedures in every department every man for themselves mentality lack of accountability poor forward planning with new programs/projects some loan programs are questionable

    Advice to Management

    Hire more high quality talent/increase compensation to attract/retain that talent (fresh blood, new ideas) offer tangible rewards for hard work, dedicate time for adopting industry standard operating procedures in every department, develop/review programs before executing them, get off your butt and find out what your team is up to and struggling with
