Needs a lot of work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsDecent benefits package and nice office.

ConsTurnover is a huge problem at SfN and Directors have no interest in fixing what’s wrong. It’s common knowledge among Staff that they are seen as easily replaceable and not worth investing in. Salaries are non-negotiable and overtime is not only expected, but necessary in order to keep up with the exorbitant workloads. Micromanaging is also an issue for SfN. Even Directors are micromanaged. It’s not uncommon to have your work edited by not only your department head, but every department head, numerous times and to the point that they’re editing their own work. It’s a common feeing among staff that it’s not worth getting work done early because that only results in more rounds of edits. This combined with a false sense of career advancement and lack of work-life balance (in most departments, not all) makes the morale at SfN quite poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementFear does not breed respect. Identify the cause of the high turnover rate and fix the issue instead of placing blame on those that leave. You have lost some amazing employees and will continue to do so until you admit there’s a problem.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
