  1.  

    Great benefits package and pretty decent pay for a nonprofit organization. Most co-workers are nice.

    I have been working at The Education Trust full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits package, nice people, pretty flexible with work schedules, laid-back for the most part.

    Cons

    Some "higher up" bosses are difficult to work for. Demanding work, can be very frustrating and often work weekends or nights. Not all policies apply to all people. The lower you are on the totem pole, the more the policies apply to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company policies should apply to everyone in the same way. Also, meetings often run late and sometimes seem like a waste of time.

    I worked at The Education Trust

    Pros

    Employees are extremely talented and committed. Everyone believes in the mission and will do whatever it takes to advance it. Highly collaborative, thorough, and thoughtful.

    Cons

    Senior leadership does not allow staff to take ownership of their work. There is a reluctance to consider opinions or approaches outside of those at the highest levels of management. There is high turnover and morale issues, and senior leadership is in denial about that fact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your team and take a step back to really assess what's going on
