Pros

Always looking to make someone's life better!

Cons

Not enough contributors, everyone cares & wants to help, not many have the time or resources.

Advice to Management

I'd like to get inside of this organization & work, volunteer, & educate other about how they can help within their communities!

    Pros

    There are some great people here, and they're all really passionate about their work. The work-life balance is pretty good, with flexible schedules, WFH policy, and compressed work week options. You get 2 hours of volunteer time per week, as well. The office is right in old town Alexandria, by the water, which is pretty hard to beat.

    Cons

    Everything moves very slowly here, as it's a big company that's been around for a long time. The benefits aren't great other than some of the work-life balance stuff, and the HR department leaves a lot to be desired. C-level execs seem out of touch with the needs of their employees as well as the needs of the field. In fact, I saw the CEO for the first time after 6 months of working here, making an appearance at our internal fundraising campaign. Your typical non-profit downside of lower salaries applies. High turnover makes it tough to keep projects moving.

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved in knowing and interacting with the employees, and making decisions that invest in your workforce.


  2. Good Place to work
