Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move away from paper mail fundraising. It might work for now, but it comes across as hypocritical and it's more outdated than the fundraising staff thinks.

    I have been working at Environmental Defense part-time

    Pros

    It is a very professional work environment and your colleagues are always willing to share and collaborate their independent work.

    Cons

    Management is always willing to listen but not often willing to move on policy which sometimes leaves them behind the curve. Overly cautious but nonpartisanship can be helpful later on.
