    I worked at Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work that the Foundation supports is generally very good, and their grantees are making contributions to significant challenges in their respective program areas. Largely the program staff are very intelligent and dynamic people, who are passionate about their work and believe in the causes that they are supporting.

    Cons

    The Foundation management is incredibly dysfunctional. They have a high rate of turnover in staff and have had turmoil in upper level management. Their is tension between the President and the heads of the programs, which have long operated autonomously. Really the Foundation is three separate Foundations operating under one umbrella. The programmatic leadership are experts in their field, but lack basic people management skills. There is poor communication, and a constant cycle of "strategic planning" fueled by inability to make choices about allocation or resources, and reluctance to shift course.
