    I worked at The Boston Foundation full-time (more than 3 years)


    Staff was very friendly and everyone was respected regardless of their duties. Regular reviews were conducted by managers in order to help employees improve their performance. The Program Officers were extremely knowledgeable, sharp and had strong relationships within the community.


    Communication was sometimes problematic especially when a major decision was made to take the organization in a different direction. This caused moral to suffer and led to an exodus of talented employees. You can learn a lot about the nonprofit community and philanthropy but there is very little room for advancement beyond the role that you are hired for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left before TBF restructured so I am not sure what things are like now. Focus on every employee and develop talent internally. Recognize employees that go the extra mile or that have worked for the foundation for an extended period of time.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at The Boston Foundation in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had two rounds of interviews with a prospective coworker and HR. Not a challenging process. By the time you reach the interview stage, they are probably most interested in getting a feel for your personality and to ascertain how well you may fit into the organizational cultural compared to other candidates.
