    Pay attention to employee's quality of life. Take care of the employees and keep in mind that being overworked leads to lower quality work

    I have been working at Rustic Pathways full-time

    Pros

    This company is comprised of some of the most incredible, inspirational, passionate, and fun people you have ever met. Working for RP means you have the chance to change the trajectory of our next generation while participating in impactful and sustainable service projects around the world. You have the chance to travel, and connect with a global community, make a difference and grow.

    Cons

    This company is still working out the kinks of a structural overhaul and is feeling some growing pains. Staff can be under appreciated and while it offers a high quality service with a focus on safety and sustainable projects, management is still trying to find a balance somewhere between a "normal" 9-to-5 work environment and giving your life up for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more time into building the "family" instead of increasingly allowing the company culture to fade as we grow.
