The emperor has no clothes! - Great Reputation. Disfunctional CEO.

Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGreat reputation and great issues. Employee pay and benefits are the near the best for non-profits. . Smart, motivated and hardworking colleagues that are often the best in their field. A great resume builder. Nice offices and location in DC.

ConsMicromanagement from the CEO has created a ridiculously broken and beurocratic approval system for everything including the most trivial issues. There is no dedication to support employees long term. Most employees feel like their position could be cut at any moment. Turn over is ridiculously high. The best and brightest in their fields are not given the responsibility to make decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe board needs a world-wide search to find a CEO that will give the employees the opportunity to do their jobs. When they do, they will meet their goal of changing the world in their chosen issue areas.
