    I have been working at Sesame Workshop full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly organization. Managers are flexible if you need to tend to family matters. Fair compensation. Generally agreeable employees. Great mission!

    Cons

    No plan for how to create a thriving, intellectually stimulating and financially sound organization. No formal measures for advancement or increased responsibility resulting in ad-hoc promotions based on nepotism and "greasing the squeaky wheel". The end result are managers who have no experience or training in management and who also lack hands-on knowledge. These lifers stick around and would be hard-pressed to declare how they have improved the organization. If you are a motivated worker you would not or should not last too long here.

    Advice to Management

    Find some courage and remove some of your peers whose only contribution is to ask their reports for information and regurgitate that to upper management. If you are one of these do the Mission a favor and resign.

    Pros

    Best people in the whole world. Best work in the whole world.

    Cons

    No reward to working hard. Lots of ego and girl drama. The more you love this company the more you will be hurt by it.
