    Pros

    The leadership is brilliant and dedicated to the mission. This is an organization that is goal driven, ready to make tough decisions, and will achieve its mission. The volunteers and staff are so dedicated an inspiring that coming to work every day is a joy. Great PTO and benefits. This is not a non-profit environment where you have to fight to the death for a set of post-it notes; you have the resources to do your job. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    It can be hard to move up in the organization, but they are working on that since they have restructured. Also working to make sure that there are no silos, and that we are working as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Work to train and elevate your current staff through a talent pipeline, or other leadership training opportunities.
