I have been working at Developmental Studies Center full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Familial atmosphere, emphasis on great work-life balance.

Cons

Do not take a job here if you have any interest in advancing your career, making more money at any point in your future, or doing anything that involves advancement in any way. It is customary for employees to work here for 5-6 years with no promotion or raises. There is a huge disconnect between the executive team and everyone else....the morale is low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your workers. Don't cut corners with them, we are the people that keep the company afloat. No cost of living raise in 6 years - that would be a great place to start.

    I have been working at Developmental Studies Center

    Pros

    Incredible and good benefits, this helps offset the cons listed below. Employees are very connected on both work and personal levels and work better together because of this. There is very equitable employee management, all employees have a voice.

    Cons

    Raises have been frozen for five years despite a lot of new hires. There has been rapid growth, and it doesn't seem that upper management was prepared to move that fast, so some cracks are showing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equitably reward long term employees.

    I have been working at Developmental Studies Center full-time

    Pros

    Great mission, employee friendly policies, good benefits, nice office space, family atmosphere, convenient location, above average IT department, decent pay for the sector.

    Cons

    A non-profit that is trying to do a little too much with resources at hand which leads to priority conflicts. An organization that is trying to scale up in revenue but the business process changes that are needed are running up against entrenched interests.
