Pros

CEL is an excellent environment for professionals who are leading experts in their field and those who feel motivated by highly-achieving, intelligent colleagues. It is an inspiring and truly fast-paced environment where employees feel challenged.

Cons

Expect to manage multiple, high priority projects simultaneously and independently. At times it can be challenging to establish clear role expectations.

    I worked at Citizen Engagement Lab full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with some of the smartest, hardest-working people in the social change sector. Not just the core CEL staff, but the client organizations are full of amazing folks working to make the world a better place. Individuals are motivated and know their stuff.

    Cons

    Hard to get management to decide on "big picture" decisions. Constant battle to prioritize work between short and long term. Understaffed for the number of clients. Reality doesn't always match rhetoric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take staff complaints seriously. Grow and nurture younger employees. There's a reason the staff experiences such high turnover.
