    I have been working at National Urban League

    Pros

    The work we do in the community feels good and we are making a difference. A lot of employees here have great intentions.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible and promotions are based on favoritism. The pay is about average of what you would expect from a smaller non profit, but raises are almost non existent. Communication leaves much to be desired. The foundation is extremely shaky. No direct deposit and limited quality professional development. No real HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Find better benefits. Truly listen to direct service staff. Get a strong HR department so that grievances can be addressed appropriately. Sometimes there is fear of retaliation if grievances go above certain managements' heads.

    I worked at National Urban League

    Pros

    The Las Vegas Urban League does good work in the community to help the underserved. If you want to make a difference in the lives of people in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas then the Las Vegas Urban League is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The Las Vegas Urban League has unneeded bureaucracy. The benefits are not that great and the pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Give more and better benefits to employees.
