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.

  1. Fulfilling and inspriing work but somewhat fickle and hierarchical organization

    I worked at Citizen Engagement Lab full-time

    Pros

    They treat you well and have great benefits but compensation is only okay. The work you do at CEL is supporting really amazing movements - the organizations you work with are inspiring and actually affecting change. Work with some really great people.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to be the only opinion that gets heard. High staff turnover rate and direction of company is constantly changing.

  2. Great staff and potential, marred by lackluster leadership

    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 Management

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