    Pros

    This organization manages to attract some smart, hardworking people who genuinely care about the work being done there. And I do think the organization is making a difference within the community. If you really want to break into the nonprofit sector, you can gain a lot of valuable experience here.

    Cons

    The director rules the organization like a dictatorship. There's very little administrative support and no HR presence (though this is changing). Some employees are held to impossible standards while others have too little to do. There is extremely poor communication among the employees and with the management. I've heard that some of this has improved since the hiring of the new deputy director, but the organization has lost a lot of employees over the past two years due to poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more structure for the organization (clear goals and regular evaluations). Be open to receiving feedback from employees (and don't punish those you label "complainers"). Managing employees needs to shift away from the director completely. The future of the organization is really going to depend on who is hired as the new executive director.
