Pros: flexible schedule, relaxed working environment, young team, forced fun
Cons: erratic management, too casual at times, forced fun, job performance depends on others
In the beginning it can come off as a very fun workplace, focused on supporting you in your craft as you learn. Very team oriented.
The job itself involves a lot of internal reports, internal team meetings, and micro-managerial updates, mixed with external meetings working with volunteers to plan with. You are also expected to hold meetings within schools, local government, and community organizations to grow the event. Hard to fit it all in - this job can really stretch you out.
It is stressful once you realize you're job performance at the end of the day, is graded on how much money your participants, teams, and volunteers raise. Additionally, it can be hard to balance work life and personal life, with management that has too many "priorities" for you, and a young team thats not very professional and can be an easy distraction.
What keeps you going are the meetings with the people who truly appreciate what you are trying to do for the organization. When someone can say that the American Cancer Society saved their life, or their loved one's life, thats what makes it worth it.
