Mixed Feelings

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

Pros--Beautiful, clean, well-lit office that is easy to get to via public transportation
--Friendly people. People you don't even work with smile at you as they pass you by in the hall
--Cafeteria inside of the office with a variety of food that is relatively cheaper than the food sold outside of the office.
--Diversity in staff in race, gender, sexual orientation.
--Great scholarship and volunteer initiatives
--Excellent team environment for full-time workers
--Flexible schedule for part-time workers

Cons--Low pay
--No room for advancement.
--Lack of adequate communication between management and employees.
--Lack of diversity in management
--An unwillingness to try new educational methods and technologies.
--More profit-driven and less focused on creating genuine relationships with customers
--Much of the staff works remotely, so a sense of genuine community in the company is lost.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to suggestions from employees and be open to trying new methods of doing things. Create an office where the staff, particularly the part-time staff and those who work remotely, feel more like real employees and not just visitors. Pay part-time workers a better salary so that there is less turnover.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
