A disaster within itself

Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsPositive mission (in it's intentions...)

ConsHuge mismanagement and wasteful spending with very few dollars actually getting to the clients, extremely poor leadership (both at Seattle directorship and nationally) , long hours (60+ per week), poor partner relations (monopolizes the publicity and donations with little return on value) and no staff support.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdmit you are bankrupt due to your practices and fold

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
