    Pros

    As most employees aren't interested in their jobs, the work-life balance is quite good. Pay is also better than average (in my experience), and benefits are very competitive Performance reviews are perfunctory, so you will always be rated excellent. Impossible to be fired.

    Cons

    Lack of any professional development. Little to no possibility of advancement beyond pay increases and title changes. Many long-term employees in positions beyond their abilities. Director and managers encourage dysfunction to keep attention off actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize. Recognize those who are succeeding. Action is needed to end the culture of unaccountability and just repeating what was done before. Unfortunately, due to the leadership of the organization, a cultural shifts have been actively discouraged and are likely impossible.

    Pros

    Location in mid town New York. Most of the line staff employees are friendly and cooperative. Overall employees are nice

    Cons

    Management has a problem with communication and respect for employees. Management treats line staff with an authoritative management style and does not accept suggeations

    Advice to Management

    Take some management and diversity courses and learn to deal with different personalities and cultures. Company management needs diversity training

    Pros

    Staff is friendly, intimate work environment. Knowing your research will help people in need. Working for a non for profit.

    Cons

    Working for a non for profit. Salary is very low compared to comparable jobs. Depending on your job you may not be able to advance unless you have an advanced degree.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees for their accomplishments. Too often people's hard work goes unnoticed. Motivate your employees more often by offering better incentives.
