I worked at Education Pioneers as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Connections. Great group of other fellows to connect with.

Cons

Narrowly focused mission, way too caught up in education reform without being thoughtful or deliberate in their actions.

Everyone seems so apt to appease fellows without actually listening to their concerns or admitting that their concerns can't be addressed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Broaden your approach to programming and training days, as well as the content. You do not have to be beholden to your donors.

Make the placement process transparent. You spend so much time finding fellows, but it seems you put no thought into the placement process and just put people where you can.

    - (travel) -- A pro or con depending on preferences and varies depending on role

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue the renewed focus on internal human capital
    - Ensure that those "on the ground" are truly being engaged in major decision-making -- EDs are not really "on the ground" anymore

    I have been working at Education Pioneers as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are absolutely amazing: friendly, relaxed, helpful, and always willing to answer any questions or offer guidance! If you're interested in education or non-profit work, this is a great opportunity for both professional and personal growth. Super relaxed and flexible in terms of hours, which makes it perfect for the academic year if you're in college.

    Cons

    It's a non-profit, so there aren't too many opportunities for rigorous, challenging work as an intern and the compensation is middle-of-the-road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I never got to interact with upper management since they're not located in Boston, but I have no suggestions.
