    Oppressive, joyless and stifling management. Missed potential.

    I have been working at Pew Charitable Trusts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have awesome peers, the place is filled with smart and talented people, the goals are lofty
    and meaningful, Pew has the resources to do 'good'. Money is not a constraining factor to get things done. Good facilities. Good benefits. Has some brand value in the US.

    Cons

    Where to start? I feel like I could write a book on the poisonous and toxic culture that permeates this organization.

    1. Management takes decisions on a whim or personal preferences despite a veneer of strategic engagement and strategy. A project can be successful, but if it is perceived as too risky, it will suddenly and with no warning, be disbanded.
    2. Pew hires exceptional people but treats them all like high school kids. No one is respected for their abilities or knowledge or previous achievements.
    3. Pew is so afraid of tarnishing its external reputation - yet treats staff so badly. Word of mouth reputation doesn't seem to be something that HR or the CEO cares about. People get fired arbitrarily or squeezed out if their opinion or approach is threatening.
    4. Senior staff bring in staff from their previous jobs. You may say - ok that's normal - but one director has brought in at least 8 people from her previous institution but that has not been questioned.
    5. Staff turnover is so high that people cannot keep up with it.
    6. People are expected to campaign but then told they can't communicate strategically (it's not the Pew style) nor can they get a contract through the system to employ people to get on with the job while Pew bureaucracy fights among itself for months.
    7. You can't write a 200 word piece for the website without 10 people editing it- usually adding more and more mistakes along the way
    8. People are just plain miserable and talking about how to 'get out'. Such a shame as it could be a great place to work.
    9. HR are at time indifferent, sometimes downright cruel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kind to staff, treat them like people not servants. Stop micro managing and let clever people do the job they were employed to do. Get a new CEO.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
