    I have been working at NatureServe

    Pros

    My favorite thing about working here is the extremely high level of thoughtfulness of the staff. And by "thoughtfulness," I don't just mean they are "considerate;" I mean, each person really puts a lot of thought into everything they do. The staff show up and give 100%. They all really think through changes, give a lot of thought to how to best achieve goals, and very carefully and articulately lay out the plans and strategies they execute. They people here are incredibly smart. The role NatureServe plays in conservation is critically important and more and more people in the conservation community are starting to realize it.

    Cons

    This is starting to change, but some of the conservation community does not appreciate how much time, effort, and money it takes to deliver the information provided by NatureServe. Because much of the information is provided for free, people take for granted that it will be there, and think somebody else should pay for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue working to show the value of NatureServe to new audiences.

    I have been working at NatureServe full-time

    Pros

    The organization and staff are mission oriented, and the mission is a good one - connect science with conservation

    Cons

    Times are tight. Little community support for the nitty gritty of collecting and maintaining data

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a convincing argument for why this work needs to be supported.

    Mission-driven, resource-scarce

    I worked at NatureServe

    Pros

    Unique B2B nonprofit with potential to do much to advance its mission to provide the scientific basis for biodiversity conservation.

    Cons

    Underappreciated and strapped for resources, in part because of the difficulties in overhauling a quirky business model inherited from its initial role as a scientific support center for the Nature Conservancy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Counting staff hours month-to-month is no way to run a business
