I have been working at Environmental Defense full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very pragmatic, yet innovative organization to work for. Seeks to accomplish large-scale environmental change with as many partners as possible. Strong organizational culture. Supportive work environment. Upper management/executives are open and receptive. Strong leadership throughout organization.

Cons

For new hires, it can be tricky to integrate into and navigate the organization. Programs and departments operate in silos and there is less cross-departmental communications and coordination.

    Pros

    Annual retreat for full-time employees, offices located in many big cities, strong advocacy in the cities where their offices are based.

    Cons

    Growing pains in their expanding projects can lead to staff members that are spread too thin.
