Great Organization

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsACS is transforming to become more agile and relevant. The mission inspires hard work and camaraderie. The people are dedicated and strive to improve themselves in this learning organization. There are many opportunities to get involved in one off projects to expand on your skills and gain exposure. There are excellent personal development programs including management and leadership development. Talent Strategy is a top notch team. .

ConsSalary tends to be on the lower scale and there is high turnover in the field/fund raising positions which doesn't help with working with volunteers. There isn't a lot of opportunity for advancement which keeps your at the lower pay. Employees have either been there 20 plus years or less than 5. So the senior employees get stuck in old ways of doing work and this frustrates entry level staff ( although transformation should help with this)

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to improve the skills of your people managers as they are the key to success.

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