Pros

Great cause, people are friendly and passionate about their work, great way to get non-profit experience and get further entrenched in the community

Cons

Interns are underutilized and program is disorganized; there is a lot more that they could be doing and it is frustrating at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase utilization of all employees; function less like a non-profit and more like a business; leverage successes across offices better

    Pros

    Great mission, rewarding to do meaningful work. Great benefits and vacation. Passionate volunteers. Training opportunities are available.

    Cons

    It will probably be a few years before the whole organization gets back on track. Work/life balance is bad for most people at the HQ office, but some seem to be doing very little. Executives are out of touch with manager and director level staff. Low morale, fear of layoffs is constant. Progressive employee health and wellbeing programs are needed to improve health, productivity, and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at these reviews and take immediate action. Set an example for other organizations by creating a culture that serves employees well while increasing productivity.
