It's a fun and engaging place to work, and you'll learn a lot.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GUIDESTAR

ProsIt's engaging work that gives you an opportunity to learn a lot about a specific field of interest you might have -- their studies of non-profits range from arts and culture to animal rights. They provide lots of opportunities for you to pick the projects you'll be working on, and the types of tasks that you do really vary, so it's useful experience for a number of contexts.

ConsMuch of the work is done remotely, which might not be appealing to some people. Internal communication is not always fast either.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at GUIDESTAR

ProsGreat direct management and willingness to try new approaches; great pay

ConsHIgh turnover but doesn't seem willing to promote within- I applied to be promoted within the company and never heard back, very awkward. Lack of communication from Senior Staff on expectations
