Poor vision, lack of opportunity
Associate (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 9, 2016
The culture of the organization is driven by management; unfortunately, this means an unwillingness to innovate or hold others accountable. Finding solutions or acting on problems is criticized or met with resistance.

There is little opportunity for growth, promotion, or advancement. If someone is promoted it is with a title change- very little salary change.

In spite of itself, the organization hires some great people- they have a problem with retaining those people.

Office Manager- Neighborhood Partnership Ctr (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJune 22, 2015
Working with grassroots community members helped me to learn how dedicated citizens can be to a cause that can help an entire neighborhood. My co-workers were so passionate about their work and made it a joy to come in everyday. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the director in planning special community events.
Pros
Environment was great, co-workers were helpful
Cons
Only worked 37-1/2 hour weeks

Marketing and Special Events Intern (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHNovember 18, 2014
Working with United Way was my first time being with a non-profit organization. It provided a completely different work environment compared to other companies I have worked with. Smaller budgets, smaller events, but great people who truly care about their work.

Resourceful, strategic, high energy HR Generalist, with great vision and very strong interpersonal skills.
HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 6, 2014
A typical day includes:

Supervision of two staff and perform as a HR Generalist in a fast paced work environment. Daily tasks include: recruitment and community engagement, orientation and onboardng new staff, benefit and compensation management, prformance management, employee relations to include FMLA, conseling and terminations when required. Staying abreast of legal updates, utilizing the HRIS to create point in time reports for analysis by senior managemen and perform other duties as required.

In management you must maintain a calm demeanor and be patient. Listen and talk through issues with staff.

Hardest part of job would be counseling an employee on issues that have to be addressed.

The most enjoyable part of my job are the daily interactions with staff, visitors and individuals met through the recruitment process.
