    I have been working at Sierra Club

    Pros

    The Sierra Club as a strong culture that emphasizes care for its employees as much as care for the environment. Staff are unionized with solid benefit system. And most managers believe employees should have flexibility to choose the best method for achieving their goals.

    Cons

    Because many of the staff are community organizers, staff often aren't in the same office as their manager and may only meet in person with their manager a couple times a year. This can mean that career development opportunities are sometimes lacking and individuals who aren't self-starters won't do well.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Sierra Club in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied but was not interviewed for a few months. First I had a phone interview with 3 or 4 people, then they flew me out to the city where I'd be based for an in-person interview. The dress was very casual - I was glad I didn't wear a full suit! About a week later, they made an offer.
