    I worked at Doe Fund full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The other employees I worked with were fantastic. We were all very close and for the most part looked out for each other. Our clients and employer partners really made the program and it was fun to work with them each day and see so much progress. Pretty much a straight forward 9-5 schedule with decent benefits so having a work-life balance is fairly easy. The HR team is also really good.

    Cons

    After 30 years of operation, The Doe Fund still very much functions like a family business, meaning that a lot of managerial decisions aren't exactly strategic. The administrative and development teams are very removed from the programs. It is a very top-down organization so if you are in an entry or mid-level role don't expect to be empowered to make big decisions or think strategically. The pay (as is with many non-profits) is quite low and they pay differs for the same role, depending on which program you work for and what that particular funding source is. There are a lot of disgruntled, low-skilled workers in the entry-level (read: case management) roles mainly because their salaries are not competitive to recruit more quality workers.

    Pros

    It is a large nonprofit company with huge legs. It is a hybrid nonprofit, which opens the door for experience with business development and revenue generation. The people who work here believe in the mission, and genuinely enjoy helping others. They hire up from within, so the opportunity to move up is tremendous.

    Cons

    Like many other companies, there can be a huge gap between how they treat middle management and under compared to how they cater to their upper management. This rings true when it comes to promotion and salary. It can seem that salaries are determined from clear prejudices and biases, depending on which side of the coin you stand. You must keep your eyes open to these happenings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its clear that saving money is more important than keeping employees happy. i get it. that's the mantra of most companies. but in order to keep great and loyal people you already have, there has to be some compromise and fairness. Pay someone's worth, not solely based on what they were making before. Minor percentage increases and promotion salary caps can be insulting.
