    Good: work/life balance. Bad: lack of opportunity for growth

    I have been working at Ipas full-time

    Pros

    The organization bends over backwards to support work/life balance. The work is interesting and supports an important mission. If you're in the right department, there are opportunities for international travel.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for career growth as there is not much movement among senior staff. Internal politics often drive decision making. Still, it's a good place to work for a few years, or longer if career advancement/promotion isn't a priority.

    Good people but terrible executive leadership. Very frustrating and political.

    I worked at Ipas

    Pros

    Most of the people are very dedicated and mission oriented. It feels good to be a part of something that saves lives.

    Cons

    The senior leadership has horrible management skills and creates a very dysfunctional corporate culture. It's hard to move up because a lot of managers are "lifers",

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions without trying to please everyone. Don't ask for input if you already have a plan and don't intend to alter it. It creates lots of bad blood.

    I worked at Ipas

    Pros

    You really feel you are contributing to others' wellbeing and that your colleagues are committed to the work you do.

    Cons

    Some of the other staff members get a little carried away with their pro-company attitude and the objectives of the organization...lose a little focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees' input.
