Great learning experience for not just myself but everyone I have encountered
Fundraiser (Former Employee), Regina, SKSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: meeting new people, learning new things.
Cons: odd hours
This job helped not only myself but everyone else I bumped into learn the importance of the sponsorship of children and people around the world. It opened our eyes to what is really going on in the world around us, it ensured us the safety of those we helped and the learning experience was amazing. It also helped with the tolerance of pure ignorance, – more... and helped keep a focus on what is truly important. I enjoyed standing for countless hours and talking to random people about what it is this company. – less

Poor management
Fundraiser (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 29, 2013
Pros: might get opportunity to learn about other departments
Cons: unprofessional environment, unfairness
There is one department you better avoid going there is Donor Support department. The manager is a very unprofessional person. He forced you to talk about your personal life and if you do not attend his gathering and parties!, forget about getting other opportunities. He has this family network with the head of the HR so he is not afraid of his bad – more... behavior. In summary if you are looking for advancement, it is a wrong place to get in. Your chances are slim and the salary sucks.

In a year, I have seen how many talented young professional walked out of this place because of bad treatment. This organization who wants to provide equal opportunities for people around the world, are discriminating people inside its own organization. Many positions are created for kids and family members of senior employees. Many positions they post, they already have the person and they do it for formality. I am counting days for my contract to finish. – less

The title of the Position should be Donor Support Representative, and as I used to work in the same department, I confirmed the statement ...

Great Organization.
Fundrasing (Current Employee), Sarnia, ONNovember 26, 2013
Pros: awesome co-workers/supervisors
Cons: standing for long periods
All around, this organization is top-notch. Very good cause, delightful people and a very positive, pleasant atmosphere. I enjoy working for Plan knowing I am capable of making a difference in the world! I have enhanced my communication skills and have been exposed to learning about situations that I don't think I would have otherwise been exposed to – more... much. I am very grateful for the high positive energy of my fellow co-workers and the flexibility of the hours and my supervisors. Even though getting rejected isn't exactly fun, it was an awesome feeling to know I am helping a great cause reach great potential. – less

Fundraising (Former Employee), TorontoNovember 13, 2013
Pros: location, humanitarian work, some pop for travel if you're in the right position
Cons: no work life balance, m shoddy management, complacency, politics
Terrible Charity!!! They copy cat other organizations. Money does not go to the child, to admin and overhead. I think their program 'Because I am a girl' is bias.' plenty of boys need empowerment too.
Years of poor management and leadership have created a crisis of cohesion -- it's very difficult to get anything done that requires the input of more – more... than one or two people. Very few people work together and/or trust one another. A few employees are openly hostile towards others. Senior management is so weak that many employees who require additional support/instruction/management in order to complete tasks on time and as required get zero feedback and face no repercussions for shoddy, incomplete work. As a consequence, morale is the pits. Due to funding instability and shortfalls, opportunities for advancement and career growth are limited Mentorship opportunities are few and far between. Many employees are so overworked, they can barely think about supporting new hires and/or subordinates. – less

Well organize and friendly environment
Mail and Child Operation Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 4, 2013
Kept organization database accurate and updated, sorted mails, and make sure items inside packages are safe to be mailed out to children. I have learned how to be effective, accurate, and paying attention to details. I enjoyed this job because of the reason behind the job and that is to reach out to children who are less fortunate in the world.
