    I worked harder at the Packard Foundation than I have in any other role. And I enjoyed every moment.

    Pros

    - The employees here are smart and talented.
    - Great benefits.
    - The office space is quite impressive.

    Cons

    - This is an extremely flat organization (which is pretty standard in philanthropy). There is not really a great career trajectory here if you are trying to move up.
    - Job titles are not reflective of the work and are not consistent across the company. A Program Associate in one department might be doing all admin work, while another Program Associate in another department might be in more of a researcher or analyst role. It depends on the department.
