    I have been working at Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology

    Pros

    Small team with big impact. Great group that is focused on making real change in the tech industry. Focus is on programs that connect, inspire and guide women in computing and organizations that view technology as a strategic imperative.
    Liberal time off (vacation and holidays)
    Virtual office two - three days a week.
    Opportunity to work with many of the best and brightest in technology as well as leading organizations.

    Cons

    Lower pay then most for profit enterprises.
    Event management and production can create stressful time during run up to.
    Support systems and automation lag what is available at large companies but it is improving.
    In kind office space not the most wonderful - feels pretty start up like - not tons of office perks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus efforts to manage workload for staff. Invest in staff skills and systems to improve productivity. Share the load when the going get's tough.

    Pros

    1. You work from home 3 days a week
    2. Most of the staff are friendly and professional

    Cons

    1. The management team is abusive, especially at the very top.
    2. There is no respect for the staff. They are not advised nor consulted.
    3. They are all about money money money. They don't focus on impact of technical women - the senior managements bonuses are tied to revenue and revenue only. What kind of non-profit does this?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board needs to get a clue on what is happening. Look at how many people left in 2012. Do you think that was a coincidence? Just because they are making revenue numbers doesn't mean they are doing the right things.
