I worked at Hispanic Scholarship Fund
Pros – Great mission and real success in making an impact in the Hispanic community.
Reasonable non-profit salaries.
Good infrastructure, support services and work environment - unlike many non-profits. Great location in downtown San Francisco
Cons – High level mission and goals not very achievable - hard to relate day to day activities. Senior management can be very absent, with a lot of direction given only by email and phone.
Advice to Senior Management – Need to support "big goal" strategies with realistic plans to achieve them. Or set less lofty, but achievable visions. Needs to be more opportunity for people to voice honest dissenting opinions.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Hispanic Scholarship Fund full-time
Pros – Great mission. Most of the people working there mean well. Occasionally can overlook the poor leadership because the mission is important.
Cons – Horrible management. Little to no guidance in the overall strategic direction of the company. Policies and strategies change almost monthly. Employees feel overworked and under appreciated. Extremely high turnover.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
