    Bad Management - Don't Work Here!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In sum: Great place to gain experience, caring staff, but senior management a bit impulsive

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    Pros-great benefits/work environment (casual dress, pets allowed, gym membership)
    -very lenient work from home policy
    -competitive pay
    -caring staff
    -nurtured professional growth
    -phenomenal location
    -"appreciation" days

    Cons-senior management changes their mind a lot on strategic approaches
    -required "focus" readings/meetings
    -9 hour days
    -priorities of senior management outweigh general practice/efficiency when they come into conflict

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
