    -Exec staff is approachable

    Cons

    -Little room for career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer employees a better career development path. 99% of resignations are for folks wanting to move up.

    Foundation focuses too much on pretend employee morale; not enough on career development/growth

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    I worked at National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

    Pros

    -Great benefits package (generous vacation offered)
    -Great (if mostly absent) Executive Director
    -HR makes an attempt to promote employee morale (monthly staff gatherings)
    -Stylish office
    -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 ManagementAdvice

    -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".

    I worked at National Fish and Wildlife Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
