    I worked at Graham-Pelton Consulting

    Pros

    Supportive and friendly colleagues. I felt prepared to advise clients thanks to rigorous training and mentorship within the firm. The firm serves diverse clients with impactful missions - helping clients achieve their goals is rewarding work.

    Cons

    Depending on client assignment, achieving reasonable work - life balance can be a challenge, but that issue is hardly unique among consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and utilize the strong human resources within the firm in a way that promotes personal and professional growth, loyalty, and affinity for the firm. Work hard to make Graham Pelton a place where people want to work.

    Pros

    A consultant gets a lot of valuable experience in a short period of time. This company offers diversity for fundraising professionals and consultants - in a number of different nonprofit sectors, geographies and services. The work-life balance is important. I have seen working mothers with flexible schedules and employees manage severe health situations with understanding and accomodations. The culture is collaborative.

    Cons

    While there is personal and professional growth opportunities, there are a lot of moving parts to juggle with client work. Some clients are easier to work with than others.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to add more social events that connect employees.

    Pros

    The initial ability to move up in the firm is good. Staff members are highly professional and wonderful to work with. The work for non-profit clients and corporate mission is what kept me at this job for so long.

    Cons

    Plenty of opportunity to move up and take on more responsibility but NO compensation given commensurate with the workload. There is an atmosphere of overall dissatisfaction among the staff. They have fired at least 9 firm leaders in the last 18 months. If you speak up about any issues at all, you may find yourself at the receiving end of a pink slip. Lack of respect from the executive suite is a given.

    Advice to Management

    Take personal responsibility for the current state of your business and the loss of so many qualified individuals.

    Pros

    I worked at Graham-Pelton for nearly three years. Working at Graham-Pelton was an unparalleled opportunity for professional development, and to hone technical skills in business development, growth strategy, operations, management, and fundraising. While at Graham-Pelton I felt I always had the support of leadership; at the same time, I was granted a high level of autonomy and responsibility to develop and pilot new and innovative initiatives.

    Cons

    People who are non driven, passionate professionals will not last long at Graham-Pelton. The company and its clients demand full professionalism and accountability, as well as a mastery of your skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Keep attracting, retaining, and developing top talent!
