    I worked at Society for Science & the Public full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    SSP does a lot of great things, including publishing a well written and edited magazine and working with tech giants such as Intel and Broadcom as partners of their science education programs. Many employees have a long tenure because of the positive impact of their work and because of good cohesive team environment that exists within the various departments. Strong senior management keeps this organization operating beyond capacity.

    Cons

    Like most non-profits, many employees are asked to wear many hats and do things outside of their job description. Sometimes this hard works goes a bit unrecognized and employees can feel overburdened during busy times. A small minority of people that have passed through SSP weren't able to handle those high stress times and like to blame others for their inability to handle stress. (Those folks are former employees not by their own choice, so take their comments on here with a grain of salt.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SSP is spread a little too thin and more resources should be added, particularly on the IT side. A human resources professional should be added as a result, to reduce the strain on senior managers and to manage benefit decisions.
