    Pros

    Great mission and values. ADF cares about its members and employees. Great benefits. Nice work environment. Good people. Opportunities to advance. Fun community interaction opportunities. Solid training in arboriculture provided.

    Cons

    Senior management becoming more "corporate" and losing site of their original plan. Spamming members with mass mailings which result in unhappy phone calls. Excluding lower level employees from events that were formerly foundation-wide. Formerly stable team experiencing high turnover due to above mentioned mass mail spam.

  2. Great cause, questionable execution.

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, newer facilities, fun opportunities for "extracurricars" like tree planting.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover due to constant restructuring, horrible "open office" plans that are noisy and difficult to work in, management out of touch with employees.

    Pros

    Good idea for a non-profit, but this company is lost in its own head.

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible management by a strange introverted person that values money more than mission.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to grow your organization without trashing your employees and taking them for granted.
