Pros

Great place to work. Innovative, friendly, and hard working staff with diverse areas of expertise. Staff are driven by the mission, passionate about their work and often work, long hard hours to achieve success. Strong ability for career growth and career development, salaries are competitive to other non-profits in the field, great benefits, and strong support from upper management.

Cons

Financial challenges are pretty consistent as are layoffs.

    Non-profit budgets and salary
    overworked support staff
    poor project load planning

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good benefits; smart and passionate staff; good work-life balance. And the mission, what's not to like about protecting open space and creating parks.

    Cons

    There exists a chronic lack of leadership at TPL. The organization's strategy is highly reactive; internal communications are very poor, and there is a clear divide between an "elite" executive team and the rest of the staff. Board oversite appears to be non-existent at times, and at others, meddling to the point of distraction. There is a pervasive lack of respect for employees' expertise, and decisions often are overruled by an executive's personal opinion.
