    Opportunity for Growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt 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.

    ConsLike 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 Senior Managementits 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.

    Organization does good work, but management could use some tuning

    A great place to grow

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Doe Fund fosters the careers of trainees and staff alike. It expects self-motivation out of everyone equally, and the environment of people working to get out of a tough time together is really electric and motivating. Staff is very responsive and it's great to watch a trainee succeed in his goals.

    ConsWith so many developing projects in the pipeline at all times, the organizational pace can easily reach fever pitch.
