I worked at American Civil Liberties Union full-time
Incredible colleagues, deeply motivated staff to pursue this work, meaningful caseload and strong support within program team, competitive pay and benefits for non-profit work
Lots of strains from large organization, including HR processes which dragged on for months. Exec Director is a great fundraiser but not a leader. Org undertook widespread layoffs that tanked morale office-wide and put many of our projects at a great disadvantage
Advice to Management
Focus more on taking care of your long-term employees who have institutional knowledge and loyalty they would like to share.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Civil Liberties Union in March 2017.
I was asked typical questions like why did I apply, what experience do I have, how much time have I spent writing and researching where I am now. The interviewer was very nice, they told me I had some great answers.
