    Pros

    Taproot is a good place to work. The people were very nice to work with and I learned a great deal.

    I worked as a fellow, so I was only there part-time, so I don't have much to say as far as cons.

    I have been working at Taproot Foundation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with other talented individuals with a variety of backgrounds for a good cause. Only a few hours per month makes it easy to manage on top of a full-time schedule. Work is for non-profits who need help.

    Cons

    No pay. It's non profit and volunteer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! An amazing company!

    I worked at Taproot Foundation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pro bono work that makes you feel really good helping non-profit organizations.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, most of the team members on our team were not experienced; they were looking to learn and gain experience by doing pro bono work for Taproot. This made it very difficult to deliver the required Wordpress website to the non-profit client organization. Also unfortunately, our client ended up doing most of the design and Wordpress work.

    Advice to Management

    Please better scrutinize volunteer applicants to ensure they actually have the experience for the role they're taking on.

    I worked at Taproot Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Many professionals have found deep personal satisfaction by engaging in well-executed pro bono projects for nonprofits. Good mission.

    Cons

    Senior leadership and former CEO encouraged negative gossip and pitted people against each other. It was a surprisingly negative culture. Hope this has all changed with a more mature CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build a professional, mature acting organization while retaining the fun.

    Pros

    Encouraging and supportive manager, playful professional atmosphere

    Cons

    I can't really say much because I enjoyed my time at Taproot Foundation. But the only con I can think of was given my situation and role, I didn't get to spend as much time getting to know the only employees as much as I wish I could have.

    Pros

    Good experience in working with teams, great processes and continues to refine them. Team members are enthusiastic.

    Projects never finish on schedule. Expect a project to go over the deadline. Also, occasional turnovers.
