I have been working at National Trust for Historic Preservation full-time for more than a year

Pros

The mission of the National Trust--saving places that matter to the American people--and the good work that it does across the country is in line with my values.

Cons

This is a challenging time financially for all non-profits right now, but it's not a "con" in regards to the National Trust.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay on course with strategy and plans. The National Trust has an exciting future.

    I have been working at National Trust for Historic Preservation

    Pros

    People are extremely dedicated to the cause and love their work. The mission is valuable and valuable changes are underway to make the organization more profitable and more effective in their mission. I have high hopes for the future.

    Cons

    While the changes being made are for the better and will ultimately, I believe, be good for the organization. Not enough emphasis is being put on how to work more efficiently. Staff would and could work so much smarter with a fully staffed and skilled IT department. The recent survey done that showed strong dissatisfaction was interpreted incorrectly. The problem is not with the staff. It's that there is not sufficient infrastructure, capacity, or budget to be able to serve the needs of the organization.

    Work life balance is talked about, but with departing staff's positions not being replaced and the work not being discontinued, dedicated staff are taking on more and more work and senior management seems unaware of how this dedication is the ONLY reason the great work is being accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting toys - I-phones are for play, not work. Also, please start taking a real look at the workload people are taking on in order to continue projects after staff has left. Please revisit the stop doing list.

    non-management staff work extremely well together. We communicate well and support each other in our work. I'd suggest taking a harder look at how senior and mid-level management communicates and works with each other and take some lessons from your staff.
