    Great place to grow your career with a growing company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsCharity Dynamics is a fast growing company with new positions and projects coming in frequently. Charity Dynamics has helped their clients put social media, mobile, and other creative solutions in place making great work for people who want to gain experience in those areas.

    At Charity Dynamics you get to work with non-profit organizations who are passionate about there causes and excited to work with you to put solutions in place.

    ConsThis is not a great fit for people who like a repeatable and predictable environment. While more processes have been added, theres still a lot of challenges due to the technology and company growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping learning along the way and making adjustments to continue to make it a great place to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible management from the top down

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey offered a fair market salary

    ConsCEO was a horrible communicator. Didn't know how to manage. Brought in a tough as nails right hand person who was worse. Absolutely horrible management.

    Would take on projects regardless of skills or resource just to get money in the door. Looks like they are trying to inflate the value in order to sell the company later.

    Great People...Awful Management.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsThe employees, worker-bees, the people who make a difference every day are the best reason to work at Charity Dynamics.

    Charity Dynamics started as a consulting company for non-profits. The President recruited a great team of people who contributed to the strategy and growth of the company. People were treated with respect, the team was cohesive, and professional development and growth were encouraged as well as within reach. As with any growing company, change can be hard but offers lots of opportunities.

    ConsOutside of the employees, the best reasons to work at Charity Dynamics are long gone. Mis-management and lack of vision define the "new" Charity Dynamics. What started as a consulting company has turned into software deployment, professional design and web development services, product development, and third-party project management. Chasing every opportunity has splintered the ability of Charity Dynamics to maintain the same level of expertise and accuracy that they were once known for. It has also contributed to unreasonable project loads, unrealistic expectations for productivity, and a drastic decline in morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen a company the size of Charity Dynamics loses one-third of it's services team within six weeks it should be considered the writing on the wall and reflective of the short-comings in management. The good news is that it's not too late to turn things around but only if you're willing to make some hard decisions in regards to cronyism, upper-management, and vision.

    Think Twice Before Applying

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsCharity Dynamics provides a lot of growth potential because they are constantly changing and because they haven't quite figured out what it is they do. I was able to move through several different positions within an extremely short period of time, which allowed me to get my hands on just about everything the business offers and learn a variety of skills. The company provides a bevy of challenges, which is great if you are one to embrace challenges.

    ConsThe management is extremely poor. The President has very little say in the operation of the company. The atmosphere is very much one of a dictatorship, where you constantly fear for your job. It is not a place for individualism or to be outspoken. Management loves to take full control of everything, with very little belief in employees, and is known to ridicule and call employees names to their faces and lie about what other employees say in order to make that employee feel like a lesser individual.

    The atmosphere is that of show up, sit down, put your head down, and work through lunch so you can leave as soon as possible. Communication among employees, unless it is related to work and can be billed, is not encouraged. Projects are constantly underscoped, and employees are given very, very little time for non-billable work, even though meetings alone take up most, if not all, of that allotted time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and pay more attention to their happiness. Figure out your niche and stick with it. Don't bite the hand that feeds you, whether it's your employees or your corporate partners.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
