    I worked at Modest Needs Foundation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    "Making a Difference", A good team of support people.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment. Poor pay with little promise of growth. Employees regularly find themselves at the whim of the President's various moods and outburst. Short employment history for past positions. President causing to take focus or concern off of ensuring timely and correct grants to be issued due to personal matters.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate employee management skills to someone trained to handle them. Fair and reasonable pay.
