    Can grow up the ladder and the cause is great!

    Cons

    No professional development or real Learning Strategy. Supervisors aren't very helpful and you just feel disconnected for the most part. Salary was ridiculous and forget about getting a real raise or making any real money.

    I worked at Doe Fund full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Doe Fund founders George and Harriet McDonald revolutionized homeless services, providing work at minimum wage on Day One in their shelters plus comprehensive support services. No other group does so much so well for the homeless. Their permanent affordable housing is also truly affordable, helping the very poor to exchange the shelter system for quality apartments.

    Cons

    Some managerial growing pains but many wonderful administrators.
