Mission and Fellowship are great, organization is management challenged, turnover is constant and everyone is overworked

I worked at Education Pioneers full-time for less than a year

Pros

Casual work environment with a mission you can get behind. Excellent results on the program side. The Fellowship experience is really valuable.

Cons

Under qualified management, constant turnover, three times as much work as is reasonable, low pay (although probably comparable to other non-profits).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the cycle of constant turnover: Current work load takes a 70+ hour work week plus travel; staff up where needed; don't increase goals/targets until something is working smoothly. Decrease internal meetings which literally take up a full 8 hours a day, and give more recognition of work that is being done by employees.

    Great people doing great work but seems to be struggling a bit with scale.

    I worked at Education Pioneers as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    National company
    Very young, driven employees
    Great cause, easy to get motivated
    The company is expanding very quickly so there is plenty of mobility

    Cons

    lack of solid structure in the company
    still relatively small groups in many of the offices.
    company is bigger than they know how to handle
    everyone in the company is needed to keep up with scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either hire more aggresively to keep up with the huge applicant pools, or consider downsizing the size of programs.
