Advice to Management
I have had the privilege of working with Quad Learning for almost four years. QL is a mission-driven organization committed to making a difference in the lives of students around the world. The... company has gone through many changes over the past several years, and has worked hard to find the right business model that will lead to both a viable business and the kind of global impact that has been the shared vision of the leadership team since the company’s inception. The company is populated with incredibly bright, mission-focused individuals. However, the ongoing state of change and at times, uncertainty, is definitely not for everyone. That said, leadership has a strong commitment to communication and transparency, and bends over backwards to keep people in the loop and up to speed as the business evolves. QL is a fantastic organization, led by an engaged and committed leadership team, and the vast majority of the company’s employees are there to do great work and make a difference in the global learning community. It’s a fast-paced environment (at times maybe a little chaotic), and one that is full of passion. A job with QL is not without frustration or stress, but things that are really worth doing rarely are. If you can handle change and are willing to give of yourself in support of a great mission, this is a wonderful place to be.
I have been working at Alley Cat Allies full-time for more than a year
Being a full-time employee of Alley Cat Allies for nearly two years, I can honestly say that improving the lives of cats is job one. The people who work here are hardworking and dedicated to the... cause; we consider ourselves champions for cats. I find the office environment to have a positive, creative synergy that translates into continually finding new ways to help community, shelter and pet cats. The weekly staff meetings keep all employees up to speed on our advocacy and outreach work. Upper management continually educates the staff about important topics that benefit cats such as cat behavior, shelter management policies/trends, law and legislation issues and more.
I’ve been working in animal welfare for over fifteen years and know how stressful, demanding and sometimes down right frustrating this line of work can be. As with all non-profits, businesses and... relationships, nothing is perfect. We do a lot of intense work on behalf of animals that are easily over looked, dismissed as nuisances and most of all, are plainly misunderstood by many people. This is hard work and can sometimes be emotional but at other times be extremely rewarding.
Advice to Management
My advice to management is to continue finding ways to place staff in areas where they can use their talents and strengths.
