  1. "Good Experience Overall"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Volunteer 

    I worked at Make A Difference

    Pros

    - Great core team, dedicated to the cause - Very organised and professionally managed

    Cons

    - Fellows (Volunteer heads, typically inexperienced undergrads in universities) were quite uncouth and lacked adequate oversight from core team leading to poor people management.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure interpersonal skills evaluated during recruitment include basic courteous behavior towards volunteers (and human beings in general!)

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Make A Difference part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have served MAD in different capacities at different roles and I must say that If you want to work at a place, where you want personal and professional satisfaction, then this is the place to be. You will see yourself growing! You will make friends for life! You will develop skills which will stay with you forever.

    Cons

    Though this was not the downside for me, but it might be for few. If you are not a full time employee, you are a volunteer and you don't get paid for your work. But you get lots of satisfaction, and no amount of money can replace it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! We love you!

    Former Employee - Volunteer in Coimbatore
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    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 Show More

    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.
