A cross between extremely political and extremely rewarding

Director Product Development (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

ProsExtremely rewarding - you can and do make a difference in people's lives
The research, the Guidelines and the training programs literally impact the difference between life and death. As an employee you have a part in that.

ConsExtremely political. To the point where it is difficult to get things done if you are not the flavor of the month. Very entrenched "that's not the way we do it here" attitude, to the point where it has kept the organization in the dark regarding other issues and organization that are competitive for donation dollars. An overwhelmingly fear-based organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the nepotism and the cronyism. Hire and listen to younger employees. Listen to them, they are your new donation market..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
