Pros

Great colleagues, great work, stimulating work environment.
Great professional development opportunities, room to experiment, take risks, and develop your own leadership style and skills.
Amazing culture where you're able to be yourself and contribute your personality to building the firm's culture.
The firm is at the cutting edge of the social sector field, putting out the greatest and latest thought pieces, and helping to pioneer in fields such as Shared Value, Collective Impact, Strategic Learning and Evaluation.
For someone who is looking for a long term career in the social sector field, FSG is the gold stamp for the sector when it comes to skills and experience. FSG combines the rigor of a top tier consulting firm with the rigor of top social sector organizations such as The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or any corporation who is a leader in the CSR/Shared Value space.

Cons

Demanding work schedule with lower than for-profit salary
Staffing situations can be highly variable; sometimes you can get stuck in a particular "field", and might not get to work in the areas of highest interest

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The people - they are passionate, intelligent, and engaging. You can't help but feel proud to work for FSG. The communication here is top-notch. It's a very transparent company where everyone is valued at every level.

    Cons

    The compensation is not as high as a for-profit counterpart might pay, but still competitive. There is no 401k match, but this is offset by the 100% health insurance coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Management does an excellent job of uniting the various offices around the country. It has made IT a priority so that all employees are able to communicate almost as effectively as if we were together in person. Management values each of its employees' ideas, concerns, and opinions. Everyone's voices are heard. It also strives to get each employee in line with the vision of the firm.
