    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Meaningful work. It is great to know that you are making a difference. Very flexible. Great people. It is a fabulous place to work - it is very rare to have a case of the "Monday Blues."

    Cons

    As a non-profit organization with a low cost per dollar raised, resources are limited. Budgets are tight. Salaries are not competitive with the for profit sector.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great work life balance. They really care about family. And they are a "work family" such a great environment to be in every day. Very flexible!

    Cons

    Working at United Way you have to care about the job! NOT the money. Obviously it's non profit so you can't expect a amazing salary. But they are fair.

    Not enough pay for amount of responsibility

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The feeling of helping others compared to working for a public sector organization is very rewarding. There benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    You start to realize that there is a major focus on making money as a 'non-profit' but it seems as though this is mostly so that the senior staff can make their huge salaries. My position did not pay nearly enough as it should've, even for today's economy.
