Why do people at work treat me this way?

catwoman

Maybe we’re mercenaries. Maybe we’re interlopers in the “pure” world of program services. Maybe we’re a salesperson, to be treated with disdain. Or maybe we’re a mysterious money bag, to be treated with awe and a little fear. I’ve seen all of these responses and more, when I go in to work at nonprofits.

We often make more than program staff. And of course, they feel resentful about that.

We, in turn, feel resentful if senior leadership do not fundraise enough, and we are not being paid to raise all or most of the money.
