    Pros

    Professionally branded organization; mission focused on serving children is easy to get behind; allows vacation payouts

    Cons

    Politics/entitlement of volunteer leadership; service organizations must evolve in the face of economic downturn and changing generational attitudes around service; everybody wears multiple hats

    I worked at Kiwanis full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people working there.

    Cons

    Membership is continuing to go down, which will hurt the organization in the long run. Spent money in areas that was a complete waste.


  3. "Serving the Children of the World"

    Pros

    Employee cookouts and other social perks; regular technology upgrades; central location (northside near Pyramids); semi-flexible work hours depending on the department; nice auditorium for large meetings; small unofficial intern program; impressive range of services provided to customers makes it an interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Non-management pay seems low even for a nonprofit; if you don't get the compensation you really want coming in the door, do not expect to make up for it quickly with raises; membership service organizations are decreasing in size so there is worry about how far membership will drop before right-sizing is needed; departmental silos exist; low morale in some departments; parking lot crime on the rise in the immediate area.

    Advice to Management

    Security cameras please!
