    I have been working at CONNECT

    Pros

    CONNECT works with a wide variety of education and research centers, venture capitalists, industry partners and service providers. In this respect their are an amazing number of networking opportunities available to the employees. As well, CONNECT is geared toward helping educate and assist entrepreneurs in their development. This allows an employee to gain a tremendous knowledge of the entrepreneurial process. Making them well prepared to go off on their own.

    Cons

    As a non-profit there aren't alot of resources. As such their are high expectations to do alot with a little. Means high pressure, and demanding deadlines. Management shifts directions all the time with the expectation that you stay with them. As well, there is nothing in place to allow for the fostering of new ideas or even decenting opinions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication lines, more transparency. Create access to senior management.
