    I have been working at Jobs for the Future full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is grest and working with external partners has been rewarding.
    There is flexibility here and an entrepreneurial spirit that is exciting. There are, however, different rules for different people so you have to figure out where you fit in.

    Cons

    The challenges are the internal staff. Nepotism is rampant and there is blatant favoritism. People in senior management positions do not have the skills to do their jobs, so there is mismanagement and a lack of leadership and vision, which has led, in my opinion, to an internal culture that is highly toxic. I try to keep out of the office as much as I can, and schedule client/partner meetings when I can. It's the way I make it work for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know where to begin because management is a problem across the board. It's almost like they need to start from scratch. I guess I would say to police the nepotism and weed out senior management staff who are incompetent. Morale is low and I know many good people who are looking elsewhere.
