Great mission, highly effective, but could be better.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsPerhaps 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.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementCreate 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.
