it was a good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

Consmmmmm, 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 Senior Managementnot 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
