    Pros

    It was a very fun job, that I loved while it lasted. Good benefits if you have a permanent position. Other employees tend to be supportive and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    No advancement potential. Low, low pay. Sometimes long hours without compensation. I had a permanent position with them for several years, but was laid off among many others. I then took a temporary position with them. During the time I worked there it seemed like resources were being directed more into marketing and philanthropy, and away from biodiversity science.

    Advice to Management

    Increase science hires and quit cutting resources to science staff, conservation work without science to back it up leads to reckless management of land.

    Pros

    Nice, smart employees who all believe in the companies mission. Great to do work for which you feel you've contributed to the greater good at the end of the day.

    Cons

    As is typical of many non-profits, TNC is behind the curve in their systems and strategies in some of the business units. Change is frustratingly slow there. Very bureaucratic. Tout a 7 hour work day which I guess is supposed to balance the low salaries. While there are plenty of 9-to-5ers, you have no such luxury in Marketing, where work-life balance is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    New leadership in Membership (as of late 2013) is horrible. Not nice people, causing very low morale and a poor work environment
