    Wonderful work life balance and flexibility for a working mom. Good professional development opportunities. I personally have had a wonderful manager who has mentored me throughout my career to help be grow professionally.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible job that works with your life. Very busy too. I cannot stand being bored so this job is perfect for me. The mission and the people are great to work with!

    Cons

    Extremely worried about the stability of my job. Management over projected how much money we would receive last year.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to save money that do not involve cutting necessary jobs. I could easily do my job from a home office & that would save on office rent.

    Flexibility in schedule. Can work from home and/or coffee shop. Upper local management is decent. Lots of events going on throughout the year. Great Atlanta office location.

    Cons

    National level does not push out achievable sales. Very frustrating for management. Lots of turnover. Fundraising database is extremely out of date.

    Advice to Management

    Phase out projections. Only input money once. Should not account for money that we do not have. Extremely annoying to input multiple times.
