Don't be fooled
Associate (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNApril 19, 2018
All that glitters is not gold! Corrosive culture, terrible leadership, poor management structure, and high turnover. The priority should be the community, donors, and volunteers. They only care about money, high salaries for executives, and image. Employees are beaten down and demoralized constantly. If something bad happens, it's all your fault as an employee. The credit for any success is claimed by executives, even when they had no hand it getting it done.

Don't fall for it. Do not work here!

United Way of the Greater Triangle -- Recent Layoffs Have Shaken the Organization
Chief Strategy Officer (Former Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCApril 16, 2018
The CEO, who took over in July 2017, instituted a major reorganization in February that impacted 10 people (most with 5+ years of experience) in an already streamlined organization. It was hard to see the dramatic loss of institutional knowledge, particularly in critical roles such as fundraising and programs.

Such a major reorganization has negatively impacted the culture as well as the perception of United Way in the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham) community.

Benefits are good and there is support for work/life balance however it is not enough to overcome the heavy workloads and the steep learning curves for the management team, particularly in effectively fundraising to support area nonprofits.
Pros
Work/life balance
Cons
Steep learning curves; inexperienced management
