    I worked at Hadassah part-time (More than 5 years)

    I have been working at Hadassah full-time

    Pros

    The hours and days off are great. Fridays are half days, get summer Fridays, every Jewish holiday is accounted for.

    Cons

    Unless you're friends with someone in upper management or a director you're not safe. Have to kiss up and be friendly to people. Regardless even if you are a hardworker and do your job it is hard to get promoted or a decent raise.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate and acknowledge your staff more. Show instead of saying it.

    I worked at Hadassah full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Short Fridays - until 2 then summer Fridays off

    Cons

    Very low salaries even for the Jewish non profit sector. Benefits aren't great. Management doesn't listen to what the "lower" staff has to say. Too many temps, favoritism....

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to lower staff- they are they true workers of your organization...

    Pros

    The people are very hard working and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    The management only listens to a few people and doesn't really feel the pulse of the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the workers and not just the bottom dollar!

    Pros

    There are some great people that you can learn from and relay on their advice.
    It’s a good feeling knowing you’re doing something that help people fill better.

    Cons

    In the last few years there were a lot of changes in the hospital’s management and it’s make you fill that it’s not a stable place to work for.

    Pros

    Great mission and a well recognized organization around the world. Great benefits make up for less than stellar salary.

    Cons

    Cut too many staff members during the financial crisis so finding it hard to come back from that. Not a great salary. Too many front line employees getting caught up in the c level politics.

    I worked at Hadassah full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid time off for all the Jewish holidays, office closes at 2pm every Friday, flexible hours, relatively generous salary & benefits package compared to other nonprofits. You can probably negotiate your salary higher than you think.

    Cons

    Keep in mind that I can really only speak about the Development Division, because each division has it's own unique culture, which will depend on your coworkers and your director. That being said, my experience in development was that Hadassah is one hot political mess. I was working with my hands tied behind my back the entire time. The legal department makes you jump through unnecessary hoops to sign contracts and get corporate sponsors, and the volunteers are catty, unprofessional and in need of constant hand-holding/babysitting. I had the opportunity to move up, but I didn't even WANT to because it would mean opening myself up to political conflicts and backstabbing. The organization is growing more and more irrelevant in the modern Jewish community, and the senior leadership is too stubborn to do anything about it. Hadassah is digging it's own grave.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the size of the board to 10-20 people (instead of 166!), start bringing on some younger employees and trying to engage younger members. Just because you have a flashy new logo and "look" doesn't mean that you have a new brand. Your values are outdated.
