Pros – -Great benefits
-Great camaraderie, folks here like each other!
-Exec staff is approachable
Cons – -Little room for career growth
Advice to Senior Management – Offer employees a better career development path. 99% of resignations are for folks wanting to move up.

Pros – -Great benefits package (generous vacation offered)
-Great (if mostly absent) Executive Director
-HR makes an attempt to promote employee morale (monthly staff gatherings)
-Nice to know you're working for a great cause
Cons – -Very little opportunity for career growth
-HR shows an appalling lack of confidence in current employees' abilities and capabilities (new positions are often posted externally without giving current employees the benefit of seeing if they have newly acquired skills/education that would make them eligible for the position).
-"Promotions" are often just employees moving to another entry-level position. No "real" growth/promotion potential.
-Head of HR more concerned with protecting the organization rather than addressing employee concerns. Very insincere and disingenuous. Does not create a welcoming attitude that invites one to confide/trust organization with career/personal concerns.
-Organization often more concerned with redecorating the office rather than focusing on developing a career development plan for employees. Organization is more "style than substance" in this regard.
-Performance reviews are for show. No real development plan results from these reviews.
-Senior Management can be a bit arrogant, distant and "out of touch" with grunt workers.
-Monthly get-togethers usually result in segregated grouping (seniors, entry-levels, departments), so the point of the exercise is futile.
Advice to Senior Management – -Focus more on employee career development.
-Stick to the actions mentioned in performance reviews.
-Employ an HR person that actually cares about the employees, rather than just the interests of the org/Senior Management.
-Entrust employee to do things that are beyond their current title. Show confidence in their ability to "learn on the job".
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – Very professional and passionate group of people, connecting people for conservation benefits. Very results-driven. Care about their employees. Fun place to work. Nice office and excellent benefits.
Cons – Compensation could use an increase for entry and mid-level staff. Too many upper level staff members making disproportionate amount by comparison.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
