    I have worked in nonprofit organizations for most of my long career and this one is the best bar none. The work is varied and interesting. The executive director is a personable superstar who engages with all employees regardless of their position and is highly respected within the field of public health. Teamwork is de rigueur. If you're a prima donna, you will not be happy here. "It's all about me" behavior is not tolerated. We have great benefits, comfortable offices and a casual dress code. Performance expectations are high -- no slackers here -- but reasonable. The staff are friendly, dedicated and very bright. We have a set of values that we developed as a team, and these values don't sit on a shelf. They are considered as part of our annual performance reviews and discussed in interviews with job candidates. You won't get rich in public health but if you want the satisfaction of working on important issues at a solid organization, this could be the place for you.


    If you come in at the specialist level, you may have to move to another organization to advance although a number of directors have moved up through the ranks. One started as our receptionist.
