It does well at some things.

Manager (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGood financial management under Kaiser. Not as political a management system as most DC nonprofits.

ConsNo focus on quality. The only accountability that exists is for Development (fundraisers) and ticket sales (Marketing). Everyone else makes decisions based upon whatever code of conduct they elect or is elected for them by their team manager. As such, it's filled with fiefdoms, antiquated and unproven programs, and, in the end, budgets that make sense only to those who draft them.

However, accountability exists where it must--at the points of entry for income. At least we get paid on time and stay out of the news.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnify your strategy and/or promote people who can develop a strategy and manage well enough to implement it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
