    I have been working at The Annie E. Casey Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Good salary relative to location, great benefits, diverse working environment. There's also lots of opportuity for domestic travel. Supportive environment for building education and skills.

    Cons

    Relative large organization = bureaucracy. Not entirely transparent in terms of hiring and promotion. Opportunities for promotion are relatively limited. Little to no opportunity for international work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency in terms of hiring and promotion. More opportunities for advancement.

    Management to a Mission or Vision

    I worked at The Annie E. Casey Foundation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    This company was founded on Jim Casey's vision to give youth in care a specialized foster care experience.

    Cons

    The Foundation has dishonored Jim Casey's legacy with their most recent acts within the last few years and have changed the way foster care will look for the rest of those who looked at Casey Family Services as groundbreakers and leaders in the communities they served.

    I have been working at The Annie E. Casey Foundation

    Pros

    You aren't doing things like grabbing coffee for other employees...you are actually doing real work that makes a difference in the workplace.

    Cons

    Low pay, but that is to be expected at a nonprofit. If you are getting internship credit, you cannoy get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Everything they put out is great information. I have gained so many skills from working here!

    I have been working at The Annie E. Casey Foundation

    Pros

    The people are some of the smartest in the country and the organization is very mission-driven; you have opportunities to explore, learn and share when it comes to the work of the organization

    Cons

    There's almost no attention paid to professional growth. Promotions are all but non-existent and titles often have little to do with what you actually do on a regular basis. I'd work here at the end of my career (when you've carved out a name/place and advancement doesn't matter as much), not at the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support younger staff more! Provide more clear paths for growth within the organization. Eventually, the folks at the top will want to retire.
