    I worked at Feeding America as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Able to to support and implement the latest and greatest technology, there was always something going on to keep you busy, you were able to be a part of the companies mission.

    Cons

    Too many management roles and everyone felt entitled. In our department it was hard to be a part of the group because a lot of people had worked together previously.

    Professional and Dedicated Staff

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Feeding America as an intern

    Pros

    The atmosphere in this organization is more professional than other non-profits where I have worked. The atmosphere is friendly, but focused on work. Feeding America has also expanded its work from a focus on food banks as a response to food security to a more comprehensive set of policies and programs responding to hunger.

    Cons

    The staff here is over-represented by white females, which is also representative of the field. They could expand the diversity of their staff in both demographics and professional background.

    Pros

    Professional dedicated staff all working to eliminate their jobs one day. Great technology innovator to assist their member foodbanks with tracking, processing, shipping, and reporting on food distribution.

    Cons

    Solely relies on donations and government subsidies to operate. Hot projects today can lose donors interests and then get scrapped.

    Pros

    Work with passionate people and food bankers all around the country. Good PTO options.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth and a very top heavy organization even though lower level staff do have a lot of responsibilities. Can make work/life balance hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue recent focus on change culture of the organization so senior staff communicate across departments and with junior staff.

    Pros

    Professional development and growth are emphasized and a true collaborative spirit! The mission and cause is the feed Americas hunger and no matter how you slice it that is a good thing. Feeding America is hundreds of times more efficient that government alone at solving hunger in the US.

    Cons

    Independent nature of the member network makes it sometimes difficult to accomplish all the goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to educate the members and staff of the direction and future of the mission!
