    Pros

    Location was pretty good I guess.

    Cons

    This is specific to NKF Serving Greater New York.

    The "orientation" process is a bunch of bull and once HR sends you to your respective department no one actually tells you how to do anything. The management structure is extremely disorganized and my "direct report" was never the one giving me projects or following up with me which was very confusing and was NOT made clear to me from the beginning. The people who I ended up working under did not know how to delegate or how to properly prepare me for what was expected of me which made a typical day there very frustrating. I was never included in meetings or discussions on projects that I was supposed to be helping with, I was only sent lists of tasks after the fact. I did not feel respected or even important to the overall success of the events and I was extremely uninspired to be working there. On top of that, this is not a full service organization and the mission is a little bit hazy. I'm still not sure exactly where the money goes or if any of the development staff care about people with kidney disease or just their own personal portfolios. If you want to work at an inspiring, mission driven, inclusive, impactful organization, where you know exactly what you get up in the morning to go to work for, DO NOT work at NKF.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    It was a great lesson in learning what to really ask about the internals of a company when interviewing.

    Cons

    This was the worst position I have ever had. The inteview process is long and drawn-out. MAJOR internal issues, most staff have favorites that get away with things. They will fire you on the spot, without any notice. Very unorganized company. All of the money currently being raised/donated is going to paying off corporate loans to stay afloat. Not even worth considering- you will never move-up.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management and a national theme that makes sense. Learn from other non-profits, because clearly something is very wrong.

    You get more bees with honey! Be kind to your staff and they will support the agency. Work place bullying is not acceptable
