Nice place to "start" your career in Washington, D.C.

Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at Alliance to Save Energy

Pros- energetic, supportive and knowledgeable staff
- a lot of opportunities to network internally as well as externally at events and webinars
- take professional development goals seriously
- gets a lot of government contracts so good place if you are looking into a career in environmental or public policy

Cons- high turnover rate. I was there for 8 months during which at least 5 people moved on to other jobs.
- projects (and your job) heavily depend on grant money, so if you haven't given them a good reason to keep you around you're most likely heading right back to the job market.
- for an environmental nonprofit that is suppose to save energy- they employees do not walk the talk. Lights are left on by staff including senior staff when they leave the office. Use of paper cups on a daily basis, highly wasteful Flavia coffee machine with individual coffee/tea pods. There is motion sensor, LEED certification and appliances with ENERGY STAR logos everywhere, but not much effort has been taken to promote behavioral sustainability internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, but also try to keep your staff on board for at least 5 years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great mission, dedicated people, but organization has been shrinking lately.
