    I have been working at Make A Difference for more than a year

    Pros

    MAD is one of the best places to work at because it gives you a lot of exposure and in the process you really get to know yourself so much better. Spending time doing justice to the society gives a level of satisfaction and happiness. MAD gives a very good platform to develop communication skills, teaching skills and personality development.

    Cons

    I have never dealt with any problem with or in MAD. It has always been like my favourite place to be at.

    I worked at Make A Difference

    Pros

    1)The kids. They make your life filled with more joy. 2)The teaching to kids. Helps you learn about student psychology and understand how difficult it is to be a teacher.

    Cons

    1) More Talking. Less Action. People at MAD Coimbatore come to chill out with their friends, not to teach. 2) There will be a lot of city circles and centre circles- just for fun sake. Imagine the kids in shelter homes. 2 hours of class with them. 6-8 hours a week for chilling out and socialising with fellow volunteers 3) Partiality and Favoritism. They look down on volunteers who come from middle class. They think...

    Advice to Management

    1) Look for sincere volunteers, instead of people who just want to show-off to the world. 2) Respect every volunteer and dont discriminate 3) If this organisation wants to make a difference, reduce all the Gala and concentrate on the kids.

        Approves of CEO

        I worked at Make A Difference part-time

        Pros

        I was a fellow and had the opportunity to setup a Corporate Relations team from scratch. The Leadership Conferences and the Innovation hubs were full of ideas and energy.

        Cons

        Since this was the first time they were setting up the team in the city, there was no precedence, and hence a blank canvas. A great opportunity to succeed but also scope for many mistakes.

        Advice to Management

        Great going! Keep the volunteers more engaged.
