I worked at Odell Simms & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)RecommendsNeutral OutlookRecommendsNeutral Outlook
I worked there for four years and found it to be an incredible springboard for my career. If the executive team trusts in your abilities, you will have a ton of responsibility and independence. The work is interesting and you get to work on behalf of nonprofits without the nonprofit culture.
The culture is pretty conservative - read two older men run the show. The company is generally pretty dated in their model. Growth opportunities are very limited. There is very little training or mentoring, unless you get an executive's attention.
Advice to Management
Promote the amazing young women you hire to be managers and leaders. Invest in outside trainings. Evolve your business model a bit to keep up with the times.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Odell Simms & Associates.
I had a wonderful phone interview with two members of the OSL staff and was told I would absolutely be brought in for an in-person interview the next week. After contacting twice for the status and to schedule the interview, I was told the position was no longer available due to internal restructuring. They offered to bring me in for an informational interview but I have since received other offers and am not interested in working somewhere so unprofessional. The position is still posted online despite "no longer being available."
