Ocean Conservancy Reviews
Pros – Good work doing something of value.
Care about employees.
Cons – Slow to take action, and implement change.
Advice to Senior Management – Can't think of any.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – If you're proactive, you can make an impact in the organization.
Cons – Office culture isn't community oriented. Individual programs have a team feel, but there's not an overall team feel that bonds the whole organization. I wished this organization had a culture of leading by example.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide more opportunities for leadership development and give merit awards based on effort and hard work. Don't call a cost of living increase a merit award.
“Your experience will be determined by your immediate supervisor and the President/CEO at the time.”
Pros – Great benefits, good cause, friendly people. It was a rewarding experience overall and my colleagues were great, however my supervisor would take credit for my ideas, never showed up to work on time (if at all), and was quick to blame me for any mistakes or shortcomings on projects.
Cons – Lots of playing favorites, unqualified managers, and back-biting. HR is also useless in resolving real conflict between employees.
Advice to Senior Management – Management needs to take a interest in the growth and development of the employees below the upper management levels.
Pros – Great mission, good environment, some very good co-workers. Good location downtown.
Cons – Organization has had a couple of instances where they grew too fast and had to cut staffing, so new positions may end up on the chopping block, unfortunately. Also the usual silo-ing of information you see in non-profits.
Advice to Senior Management – Grow slower and smarter, but overall a good organization with good leadership.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
