Terrible. Terrible, absolutely the worst place I have ever worked.

Pros

Almost nothing. The benefits were decent.

Cons

Extremely long hours. No employee appreciation or understanding. Very little respect for roles outside of sales. Extremely micro-managed and very high turn-over. Employee morale was very low.

Advice to Management

Stop micro-managing your employees and calling it team work.

    Pros

    There are some wonderful, hard-working employees, who believe in and support the mission of the organization; unfortunately, they aren't the ones making the decisions there...

    Cons

    The egregious waste of donor dollars by senior management is deplorable. The treatment of employees, by much of the management, ranges from indifferent to malevolent. Inequity abounds and politics run rampant with privileges and promotions because of who you know, not what you know or effort put forth. Career paths are non-existent...

    A cross between extremely political and extremely rewarding

    Pros

    Extremely 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.

    Cons

    Extremely 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 Management

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