I worked at Environmental Defense

Pros

-hardworking colleagues.
-great reputation
-the issues and mission are really worthwhile
-great location in san francisco
-you feel proud working there.

Cons

mmmmm, some of the management are very corporate oriented, and not as edf-mission driven as others. also, everyone but the admin staff are treated really well. if you're admin, then be prepared for a life of fetching sodas and filling out endless, ever-changing expense and credit card reports (every few months, the financial team changes, and with every change, they change or update the reports and charge codes.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

not a a lot of cross program work or relationships - too many meetings just for the sake of meetings. go back to the old EDF way.

    I have been working at Environmental Defense

    Pros

    Perhaps the most effective environmental NGO to work at the intersection of environment, markets, and business. Most employees feel like they have an ability to shape the national dialogue on environmental issues and the organization is creative in it's approach.

    Cons

    There is no clear path for advancement within the organization, so it's up to employees to "figure it out" and make opportunities happen for themselves. Compensation for employees that rise up within the organization does not keep pace with new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a consistent advancement track for employees and improve equity in salary for new and existing employees. Encourage managers to praise employees for a job well done on a more regular basis.

    I worked at Environmental Defense as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Targeted training, clear mission, supportive management, carefully selected host organizations

    Cons

    A bit short in duration. Fellowship lasts only 10-12 weeks because it typically targets current students who participate during the summer months.
