    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity part-time

    Pros

    Everyone seems to have a real sense of purpose, which can make a huge difference in the workplace. Room for advancement if you're willing to work hard and put in the time.

    Cons

    Each branch runs fairly independently and sets its own course, so sometimes there are people in neighboring communities who can be a little bit confused about what each branch is focusing on, but it's not a huge issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, whatever you're doing. It's a happy place to work, we get to help people, pay isn't terrible for a non-profit - what else could you ask for?
