      Pros

      Pay wise is quite good. Environment depends on the CO u posted to. If you posted to CO that is more flexible you are lucky.

      Cons

      Long working hours. Especially if there are big event or national project. If boss good, your working environment will be good too.

      Long Hours and Limited Promotion Opportunities

      Jul 12, 2021 - Constituency Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Changing events/initiatives makes it fun and less mundane. 2. Not a desk bound job.

      Cons

      1. Events are run by volunteers, who are most of the time available only after their work hours. So you will find yourself OT-ing after your work hours in order to plan for the events with them or have meetings. Eats into time with loved ones and yourself. 2. Work on weekends too, which means possibly giving up social activities with friends and loved ones. 2. Limited promotion opportunities as slots are few and fixed, unlike private companies that grow and expand. Many employees choose this as their first and last job too, which means those positions will get locked up. 3. Minimum 3 years of experience before allowed to promote or transfer across or within departments.
