Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros-employees are there because they truly believe in the work
-great work/life balance
-laid back atmosphere

Cons-organization has been going through massive structural changes that have negatively impacted employees

Advice to Senior Management-strengthen areas of work that are weak (i.e. non-event related income; relationship-building and cultivation with individual and institutional donors; major gifts)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
