I have been working at First Book full-time (More than a year)
mission-driven, passionate employees - everyone is committed to getting books to kids, and growing the organization's capacity to meet the needs of all children
confusion and dissonance over organization's strategic priorities - information is not communicated effectively from the top down
organization silos and cross-departmental friction
Advice to Management
listen to your people and eagerly consider their feedback - First Book has so many smart, driven people who are invested in its mission.
I applied online. I interviewed at First Book (Washington, DC).
Friendly interview one-on-one with two team members, including person who would be presumable manager. Standard questions with weird HR encounters directly following the interview - promised follow up call three days later by three separate members of their team and was never called/emailed, even for a rejection. Very unprofessional - this interaction left me happy I didn't work for them.
