Looks better on the outside than the inside

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe salaries are good. With little experience you can get a good title and lots of perks like travel abroad and meeting high level people. There are opportunities for people willing to go along with organizational agendas. Good work/life balance.

ConsThe company culture feels more focused on pleasing donors and raising funds than having a positive impact. There is a lack of transparency within the organization and some of the donation practices are questionable. There's a lack of expertise among the leadership. There's tons of turnover, as people realize what the situation is and quickly leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe organization needs less focus on image and more on substance in the work. The focus should be on helping people not on pleasing donors. More transparency and more critical-thinking among the leadership is needed.
