    I worked at Pew Charitable Trusts full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great location, office, and some amenities. Sense of mission and purpose is strong. You will work with smart, accomplished, hard-working colleagues. Depending on where you find yourself in the organization you can even have some fun!


    Rigid, bureaucratic management structure stifles staff and programs alike. Promotion is difficult unless you metaphorically win the lottery.

    Advice to Management

    Gradual transition to new C-suite management and dilution of board oversight into hiring and promotion practices.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Pew Charitable Trusts (Washington, DC).


    Interview was a panel interview. The HR dept. Called me in at least three times for seperate interviews in different departments. Assuming it wasn't a good fit I never received an offer. The HR dept. Never returned my email or calls after the last interview. So if there's no offer dmt expect a courtesy call back. You must be persistent during the interview process for feedback.
