    I worked at Genetic Alliance

    Pros

    Because the office is small, you will get a large amount of responsibility which can be great for someone just out of college

    Cons

    The management is awful. Employees that are disliked are targeted. Genetic Alliance is trying to do far too much with too few resources. Half the staff are very unhappy and this unhappiness is addressed through "sharing feelings" at staff meetings, where staff are told off if they do not share their feelings. Despite being a nonprofit "based" in science, the employees know little about science and have little desire to learn.

    -very lenient work from home policy
    -competitive pay
    -caring staff
    -nurtured professional growth

    -"appreciation" days

    Cons

    -senior management changes their mind a lot on strategic approaches

    Personally, I believe if there were more established practices and routines, the staff, day to day efficiency, and morale level would improve.
