Established organization moving toward improvement

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsAfter just 3 months on staff, I feel senior management knows me and is invested in my professional growth. The URJ has recently undergone a major transition in senior leadership and in that process, certain departments/people were eliminated. Overall, the changes make sense as part of a new vision and the organization is clearly committed to moving forward.

New staff are supported and veterans are eager to help people learn.

ConsThere are still some challenges ahead for the URJ as they figure out exactly what it means to be a liberal Jew in the 21st Century and as the new vision and programs are implemented.

I experienced some difficulties with HR and Payroll when I was first hired, but those employees have recently been let go and the new staff seems much more competent.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to front-line employees and leave as many lines of communication open as possible. Your ideas are great - now we just all need to make them happen.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
