Program Coordinator, Non-Profit Organization in Miami:
"Enjoy but with caution."
Pros: Here, you have the distinct opportunity to go home everyday knowing you made a difference. Working with the blind and visually impaired is incredibly rewarding. The company has a vast amount of resources for the blind and the entire staff feels like a well-knit team. Also, the benefits are fantastic.
Cons: First and foremost, do NOT disagree with the CEO, even if you have the right backed by years of experience. She does not take disagreements lightly and expects you to be a "yes man/woman". Next, do not expect to be compensated justly unless you are executive staff or are in good standing with the CEO. Since it is non-profit, the salary is on the low end and raises do not occur until December. Also, the level of education you have has little to no effect on your compensation or raise. Another con is the confusing hierarchy. There is a constant feeling of multiple bosses with, oftentimes, opposing priorities. This is beyond unsettling.
