    Pros

    - Unique model to support entrepreneurs and catalyze development and job creation
    - Travel perks
    - Great work/life balance
    - Wonderful, experienced and dynamic staff members for the most part
    - Opportunity to work with amazing and interesting entrepreneurs and business leaders

    Cons

    - Management is tuned out and resistant to feedback, often traveling and absent from the office
    - CEO is disconnected and does not have priorities that reflect the organization's best interest
    - Lack of clear career path and opportunity to growth
    - Not enough time spent towards really thinking about employee retention strategies, leading to a revolving door and loss of potential talent
    - Lack of consideration towards maintaining systems or structures that could prevent a 'reinventing-the-wheel' type situation with much of the work

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to listen to feedback and try harder to show that you're as interested in the organization as you expect employees to be.

    Pros

    Very nice group of people, flexible work hours, travel opportunities, intellectual work, professional development opportunities, opportunities to get published, build a network

    Cons

    Few people believe wholeheartedly in the mission; pay is on the lower side, especially for someone with a master's degree, CEO/founder is not popular

    Pros

    Endeavor is THE name when it comes to High Impact Entrepreneurship. Although Endeavor is a non-profit it is very much run like a business. How many non-profits actually give bonuses?

    The organization has a strong mission, phenomenal network, and global reach. It's a great place to work for anyone who loves entrepreneurship and travel. Benefits are generous with full health, dental, and matching up to 5% of your salary for your 403(b) plan. Endeavor is full of passionate and intelligent people. We celebrate birthdays and generally enjoy one another's company.

    Cons

    I don't have many negatives about working for Endeavor. They really do try and make it a special place to work. Endeavor could benefit from a stronger emphasis on HR, in particular with focusing more on the personal/professional growth of each employee.


  10. Inspiring place to work with exceptionally talented, motivated, and intelligent coworkers.

    Pros

    Quality of team - I have been remarkably impressed by the intelligence and work ethic of the Endeavor Global team. It's a pleasure to work with such competent and reliable people.
    Global Scope - working at Endeavor you are exposed to over a dozen different markets and entrepreneurs across all industries.
    Leadership Exposure - working with Endeavor Entrepreneurs, board members, and Endeavor's global network of mentors and industry experts is a treat. A phenomenal learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Endeavor Global is small so it can be limiting from a growth perspective. That said, it's growing fast and there's definitely more opportunity today (in 2012) than there was in 2010 for example.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at Endeavor Global has made a great effort to improve communication and transparency within the organization and it's worked. One tip would be to better anticipate HR needs and plan strategically from a people and team perspective.
