    I worked at Nclr full-time

    Pros

    Passionate and highly talented employees who are dedicated to their work and getting the job done; Great camaraderie; Strong benefits package and time-off policies follow industry standards. Monthly meetings highlight department or individual employee accomplishments.

    Cons

    Diminished opportunities to move up; Upper management is not as open to new ideas as one would hope; Some policy issues get more attention then others. Compensation may be industry standard but if you have a lot of experience coming in expect a pay cut. Training could be increased. Opportunities for personal growth can be hindered by which manager you work for.

    Current Employee - Intern in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Nclr

    Pros

    When it comes to social justice, there are not many jobs available. The staff is very eager to help develop you, and truly do care about you as an individual.

    Cons

    At least with regards to being an intern, there was a lot of busy work that I had to do. I felt that a lot of the time I wasn't learning anything and instead simply filing papers and getting the mail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more structured program for interns.

    Former Employee - Analyst in Washington, DC

    I worked at Nclr

    Pros

    The NCLR brand and public reputation. Opportunities for advocacy on issues of significance to Latinos. Good starting place for entry level professionals with advanced degrees. Sophisticated issue managers. Sophisticated in-house publishing capabilities.

    Cons

    Harsh, punitive corporate culture. Poor employee morale. Exceptionally poor work-life balance. High rates of staff turnover. For non-senior staff, poor physical environment for work given the emphasis on the production of publishable written work...densely packed cubicles without the benefit of sound proofing. Bottom line...if you have acquired previous professional policy experience in the nonprofit sector or government, skip the pain and don't apply here. You won't tolerate the nonsense.
