    Growth opportunities, smart people, flexibility for families!

    Director (Former Employee)

    Pros- Interaction with colleagues from across the country (virtually and in person)
    - Fast-paced with ambitious goals
    - Smart & passionate people
    - (travel) -- A pro or con depending on preferences and varies depending on role

    Cons- (travel) -- A pro or con depending on preferences and varies depending on role

    Advice to Senior Management- Continue the renewed focus on internal human capital
    - Ensure that those "on the ground" are truly being engaged in major decision-making -- EDs are not really "on the ground" anymore

    Perfect academic year internship!

    Intern (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe people are absolutely amazing: friendly, relaxed, helpful, and always willing to answer any questions or offer guidance! If you're interested in education or non-profit work, this is a great opportunity for both professional and personal growth. Super relaxed and flexible in terms of hours, which makes it perfect for the academic year if you're in college.

    ConsIt's a non-profit, so there aren't too many opportunities for rigorous, challenging work as an intern and the compensation is middle-of-the-road.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI never got to interact with upper management since they're not located in Boston, but I have no suggestions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Culture-driven environment where staff are treated like family. EP genuinely cares about its staff!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Oakland, CA

    Pros-High-exposure to the ed-reform realm.
    -Great cast of staff that are driven to succeed in all aspects of their jobs.
    -Flexible working arrangements and schedules for all employees.
    -Great Performance Management infrastructure that allows for employees to drive their own professional growth.

    ConsThe pace is incredibly fast and may be a potential sticking point to employees that are not accustomed to such a pace.

    Mission and Fellowship are great, organization is management challenged, turnover is constant and everyone is overworked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCasual work environment with a mission you can get behind. Excellent results on the program side. The Fellowship experience is really valuable.

    ConsUnder qualified management, constant turnover, three times as much work as is reasonable, low pay (although probably comparable to other non-profits).

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the cycle of constant turnover: Current work load takes a 70+ hour work week plus travel; staff up where needed; don't increase goals/targets until something is working smoothly. Decrease internal meetings which literally take up a full 8 hours a day, and give more recognition of work that is being done by employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people doing great work but seems to be struggling a bit with scale.

    Data Analyst Intern (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsNational company
    Very young, driven employees
    Great cause, easy to get motivated
    The company is expanding very quickly so there is plenty of mobility

    Conslack of solid structure in the company
    still relatively small groups in many of the offices.
    company is bigger than they know how to handle
    everyone in the company is needed to keep up with scale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEither hire more aggresively to keep up with the huge applicant pools, or consider downsizing the size of programs.
