    Pros

    With very few exceptions, those who work at GuideStar are passionate, caring, and dedicated. Though the culture has changed under new leadership, new and innovative ideas are flourishing. The company is growing, but also recommitting to its roots--serving the nonprofit sector. Perhaps most importantly, though, knowing that your work is contributing to a strong, efficient, and effective nonprofit sector is the most fulfilling component of working at GuideStar.

    Cons

    There are a significant amount of changes that have occurred and are continuing to occur. These changes, for the most part, are needed and appropriate changes, but the transitions can be a bit strained. Change is hard and lots of change is can really hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more strategically and purposefully in a diverse employee base. Make a commitment to incorporating diverse backgrounds and individuals at all levels of the organization--particularly in leadership. To serve the diverse nonprofit sector effectively, this is necessary.
