      If you are hard-working, the job can be rewarding . But verify your paychecks against your hours

      Pros

      Festival tickets, fun staff training days, public acknowledgement for good work, good work incentives (mini prizes) and team building exercises were fantastic. The social aspects were brilliant. The parties were fun and there were occasionally national gatherings of fundraisers organised in a ceremony at head office, to present awards and socialise. Working outside and being paid for it is refreshing, its not so much of a sedentary job. Semi-flexible working hours. Variety of location, getting to discover new places in your given region.

      Cons

      Low tolerance to failure (workers can be put on "probation" before being fired). High turnover of fundraisers means group cohesion can be thrown off. The daunting feeling of not having achieved enough "sign ups" on a day and the subsequent pressure from above i.e. the team leader (who feels pressure from management). Frequent miscalculations of wage by payroll executives. Workers, log your hours and check your pay checks!! When I realised, I had already left Greenpeace. Lastly, there is very little job security, but this is the nature of fundraising, if you reach targets, you stay and reap the benefits.

      Puritanical and judgemental culture, unwelcoming to ethnic minorities. Regularly use settlement agreements to gag dissent.
