Pros

At TSG it is all about the people! Our big diverse group is making a global difference, adding great value to what other nonprofits are doing!!! Even on a bad day, and we all have them, I go home knowing I am doing good works on a global scale!
I am super lucky to work here and thank my lucky stars!!!

Cons

As a global technology nonprofit in the Bay Area it is hard to compete against the for profit salaries and find the kind of tech savvy talent we need.
Thank goodness for our work/life balance and benefit package which makes up the difference!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our org chart is very very complex and it is very challenging for our new hires to understand who to go to for what? Thankfully we are great at welcoming people on board and have so many talented folks who have worked here for many, many years to offer help and guidance!

    Pros

    If you want a job with low expectation and weak deliverables, it is a pretty cush spot. Benefits are good. Culture and many people are good too.

    Cons

    The wages are an embarrassment for a $20m company that doesn't pay taxes. Your lip service is insulting. Stop BS-ing people. Just say 'no' when the answer is no. A reason would be nice. A can-do attitude would be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have too many directors. Stop promoting people who always agree with you. Offer career paths, mentorship, and better education reimbursement plans for dedicated employees who want to become more valuable to the company!

    Pros

    The overall objective of TechSoup is noble and deserves a lot of respect. Success at TechSoup means you're helping people in nonprofits save a ton on operating expenses and helping them leverage technology to help them achieve their goals. There are also some wonderful people working at TechSoup and they have the capacity to contribute so much.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Ego-driven individuals working for the glory of themselves often gets in the way of people being able to take initiative and work towards the overall objective. Communication isn't done well which forces a lot of people to cut corners in order to avoid dead ends. Understaffed teams cause work loads that aren't properly managed forcing people to work extra-long days with zero compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, empower global partners to get things done and use the global office as an asset instead of the barrier that it is. Listen to what people have to say as there are a lot of great ideas floating around that never get done.
