Non-Profit Organization - poor choice for any employee with financial or career goals.

(Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsThe company has decent health benefit plans, due to the union presence.

ConsThe company:
* Has not made money in many years.
* Has reduced its work force significantly, over the past 5 years, with High Turnover in Sales, IT.
* Has not provided pay raises to many of its internal groups in more than 5 years.
* Pays below many other organizations in the downtown area.
* Offers no employee development programs, performance management programs, and very little training.
* Has mandatory unpaid furloughs when business is worse than usual - the employees pay the price for poor management decisions.
* Is uncomfortable with flexible working arrangements.
* Is primarily union-employed.
* Seems to have no direction or strategy to adapt and survive.
* Offers only $1000 tuition reimbursement with lots of strings attached.
* Has a great deal of internal struggling, turmoil, political turf wars - fairly stressful & hostile environment.
* Has few truly talented professionals on staff - most of the leaders 'grew up' in the organization, have limited other education and no other experience, and are unaware of best or modern practices.
* Offers no incentives for success and no punishment for failure - with no financial rewards, people pretty much just show up every day and do whatever. They have stopped trying to better themselves or the organization.
* Poor employee communications programs - no one ever really knows what is happening with the business.
* No bonuses are paid - the company does not make money.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire many of the leaders of your organization and hire business professionals from for-profit companies who know how to make money.

Adapt or die. You are on life support. Take action now.
