Incredibly well run company, smart staff, not too much internal innovation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA

ProsThe senior staff are amazing, and have developed a well oiled machine. It's the most efficient place I've ever been, and they do great work for their clients. There is a strong focus on employee happiness, and the work life balance is amazing. They have a great benefits package, which includes a professional development budget for every employee, great health benefits, and lots of other perks.

ConsThe ideas that come out of the company aren't very radical, which is to be expected since the company primarily works for the largest nonprofits in the country. The work product is solid, focused on satisfying business goals, but there isn't often too much out of the box thinking. They're working to change that, but there's still a lot to cover.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
