    I have been working at National Parks Conservation Association full-time (more than 8 years)


    Great mission, smart, passionate people. Most employees go home between 5-6 every night, and many of us get to travel to national parks as part of our jobs. Good workplace culture, especially among lower-middle levels of staff.


    Executive leadership is mediocre. Most VPs have been at NPCA for 10-15 years, and would be hard-pressed to find top-level jobs at other organizations, so they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Which means the up-and-coming staff rise to a certain point, then leave. New CEO comes from corporate environment and has struggled to put his imprint on the organization, as he doesn't seem sure how to contribute. When VPs disagree with one another, no one has the power to make a decision over the other's objections, so conflicts remain unsolved. Recently, the organization has been talking to oil companies involved in a new park proposal in Texas--strange bedfellows considering our focus on fracking, climate change, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake things up--the same people in the same roles means the same thing year after year. NPCA's name and brand are worth more than you think--stop partnering with organizations that stain our name.

    Neutral Outlook
