    Pros

    Fast pace, changing industry, various people coming through with moving and touching experiences to fourth bring to the world.

    Cons

    Hard to get so many people to listen to ideas, agreeing in a timely manner, many people are out for themselves, more teamwork projects where the same passion for what's needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the higher up wouldn't mind giving enough time to let the little people share thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    A very fun place to work because the people rock

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The people are some of the greatest to work with. The benefits are outstanding for a non-profit. It is a very fun place to work.

    Cons

    Work - Life balance is non-existent. They make you work your butt off. Watch out for salaries. They don't pay market rate for some of the positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make bonuses merit based instead of flat rate for titles. Spread the work around more evenly. The good people work far too hard and the bad people seem to get away with being crap.

    Should be paid, unpaid work should have been illegal

    Current Employee - Intern
    Current Employee - Intern

    Pros

    Great Networking and free CD's and promotional items.

    Cons

    Due to budget cuts NARAS let many secretaries from around the country go. Now they hire 1-3 unpaid interns a term and make them do everything the secretary once did FOR FREE. This should be a paid internship. Unless you are mindless and have never worked before, you will learn nothing at this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your interns!!! You have to money to pay them minimum wage, and if not? You don't get interns!
