    Pros

    GlobalGiving was a fantastic place to work! Here are just a few reasons why:
    - It is made up of talented people that are passionate about achieving the organization's mission to help community-based organizations increase their impact.
    - Staff at all levels are challenged to question the status quo, think big, and experiment with new ideas.
    - The organization is constantly evaluating ways to be better, work smarter, and achieve more.
    - It's a great learning environment with opportunity for professional development.
    - The office is colorful and casual and has an open floor plan, which makes conversation and collaboration easy and organic.
    - There are lots of opportunities to work with and engage directly with leadership.
    - Leadership regularly assesses the satisfaction, needs, and wants of staff and makes corresponding adjustments to benefits, working conditions, and strategic direction.

    Cons

    - As a non-profit organization filled with passionate go-getters, team members can be stretched thin and expected to play multiple roles.
    - Leadership does not always model great work/life balance, consequently staff members feel that they need to always say "yes" to new opportunities, even when their plates are full.
    - Because GlobalGiving feels like a family, there's a tendency to keep team members that may not be a good fit. As a result, others may have to pick up the slack.
