Manager (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – June 9, 2016
I can't speak for other United Ways across the county, but the United Way in Austin, TX is financially unstable. The managers are only interested in advocating for their own jobs when budget cuts are a possibility, which is frequently. Staff are given extremely heavy work loads with few to no opportunities for advancement. Many of the staff exude a general sense of unhappiness.
Many non-management staff are good people stuck in bad jobs

Seasonal Campaign Worker (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 10, 2016
A typical day at work would be counting, sorting, and filing papers. I learned how to take care of my cardiac health, and how to professionally dress. The managers were somewhat easy going; the co-workers were older than I was and therefore set examples of how a person should work and behave in a professional setting. The hardest part of the job was continuing to work for the multiple hours of attendance because of the ritual repetition of routinely looking at paper. Even still, I enjoyed the presence and company of my co-workers who gave me their companionship.
