    I have been working at Net Impact as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Amazing vibe within the company, everyone truly cares about what they are doing and works as a team
    2. Work/life balance is emphasized
    3. Plenty of support from my manager to complete projects
    4. Work expectations were clear and work levels reasonable
    5. Company is expected to grow soon
    6. Fantastic transparency between upper management and the rest of the organization
    7. Tons of professional development opportunities
    8. Many of the managers are very well connected within the community and help you build your network.

    Cons

    1. All fellowships are unpaid, living in San Francisco and working 20+ hours a week for free can be rough.
    2. It's a non-profit, so sometimes processes move slower than they would in a for-profit corporate setting. Patience is required.

    Pros

    Awesome culture and people. Great wine down happy hours on Friday. Working with a nonprofit is awesome because it's a lot less stressful.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of cons. I really like the job and the people are great. One thing that I would change if I could is to bring a little more action into the office. It is a typical office job so it can get kind of quiet.

    Pros

    Net Impact is a great organization, with lots of smart and hard-working people. Because it is a lean organization, there is lots of opportunity to learn new skills and stretch up.

    Cons

    As with all nonprofits, sometimes you wished you had endless budgets to meet your audacious plans. That can be frustrating, but that's what you get working at any nonprofit.

    Keep doing great work!

    Net Impact - Top Notch Nonprofit

    I worked at Net Impact

    Pros

    Net Impact fosters a professional nonprofit work environment, with great people and members who are committed to the mission. Unlike other nonprofits I've worked for there is an emphasis on professional development of junior level employees and opportunities to gain new skills. The annual conference is a fantastic place to network with members and like-minded people. The movement toward "corporate social responsibility," and "sustainable business practices" are the way of the future and it's great to get up for work every day knowing you are making a positive contribution. Working with Net Impact's members, both student and professional, is invigorating and inspiring.

    Cons

    Net Impact has the nonprofit "industry standard" of lower salaries. They seem to be fairly competitive with other nonprofits in the area. In many nonprofits there are other "non-monetary" benefits to help compensate for the low pay - casual clothes at work, flex time, ability to work from home, etc. This is not generally the case at Net Impact. Although it is a nonprofit, it's run by MBA's, so there is a bit of a corporate environment. Fundraising and sponsorship can be difficult as not everyone wants to give their hard-earned cash to budding MBA students working to make social change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more freedom to the mid-level employees to make decisions on their own.
