Very positive work environment, lots of growth available
Fundraising Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 December 2017
This is a workplace where innovation and hard work are always rewarded.

People from all types of backgrounds are accepted, and can contribute to causes that have a real impact. If you're not sure how to get started with non-profits, or are just looking for a meaningful career then this is a great place to try.

There are tonnes of options for advancement, the staff teams are friendly and supportive, and the job is alot of fun if you have the right attitude about meeting new people.
Pros
Good management structure and growth
Cons
Not for lazy people. Poor work ethic is not rewarded.

Fundraising Coordinator/Fundraiser (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS22 November 2017
I wouldn't work here ever again. The job security is horrible. The management needs works. They pretend to care about people but really they do not. Very poorly organised.

Fun and people oriented environment
Fundraising Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton location14 July 2015
Great way to fulfill the inner most need to contribute to the over health and wealth of life. This environment was mostly with young people (in their 20's) and to take care of the logistics for them so they can go out and create change, felt like the puzzle is complete. Everyone had their part to play and there was a lot of vitality in the workplace.
Incredibly transparent as well, seeing young Managers start out and blossom into leaders that are not only competitive but stand out and become the exception to excel in their position.

HR is always supportive and leave you feeling good about anything that's required. Great company to work for.
Pros
Flexible in position
Cons
Sometimes short on materials due to miscommunication

Working in a new field
Fundraising Coordinator (Promoted) (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON16 November 2014
Working at PO was a great experience. It was challenging in the sense that I had to learn a new system without much training also being in a new industry. Non profit sector.
Working autonomously allowed me to motivate myself. Being of service to my team was pleasant; the young people were inspired by life overall.
Pros
Flexibility in working hours
Cons
Payrate capped

An irrational and hostile work place
Personal Fundraising Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto9 October 2013
Salary was based on commission and if you did not meet the daily commission requirement, they would threaten your job security.
Cons
Discouraged employee creativity, threatened one's job position, employees expected to bring in a set amount of sponsors per day

Meaningful work, great employer
fundraiser/manager/ administrative assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary27 December 2012
I worked for Public Outreach for a few years in various roles (fundraiser, manager, team leader, etc).

Had a great experience and I definitely recommend fundraising roles to my friends and individuals looking to start their career even if it is not in non-profits.
