    Pros

    United Way is a great place to work. Generous PTO and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    As with any true non-profit agency, the salary is less than desirable. But the generous PTO makes up for it in some ways.

    Cons

    The company has become all about politics and it seems the mission is not focused on and they don't care about their employees like they did.
