    I have been working at National Parks Conservation Association

    Pros

    NPCA offers a thirty five hour work week, decent benefits, and an easy commute. The organization's committement to work life balance is also greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    NPCA is lacking in diversity despite the organization's committement to diversity as a core value. Senior management in some, but not all, divisions seem disorganized and inexperiened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and supervisory training would be useful. as would cultural competency training. The different divisions of NPCA operate in silos; some silos seem fully functional and decent places to work; others seem like dysfunctional messes.

    I worked at National Parks Conservation Association as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for the National Parks Conservation Association was a rewarding experience. I was able to meet many government officials, work on independent projects, and wasn't constrained to working in an office everyday during my internship.

    Cons

    Lack of communication at times.
