I have been working at Hispanic Scholarship Fund full-time (Less than a year)
Many team building activities, it shows that the organization wants to improve and unlike many companies even corporate companies we are given great perks. This organization does give a lot of experience of how the corporate world can look especially if this is your first job.
A lots of turn over, ineffective technology systems. The management is a direct reflection of its leadership, they waste a lot of time with activities the promote transparency while continuing to have very little authentic communication and inclusion of some staff depending on departments. Also because there are many departments transparency can be difficult especially considering the different personalities that lead including and especially HR.
Advice to Management
Don't be a hypocrite about how you want to improve communication when the clicks and favoritism are very apparent even in exchange of information. If your goal is transparency and impeccable practices then don't create personal friction.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hispanic Scholarship Fund in December 2016.
Two months after submitting a resume I got a call from someone in HR. At this point I hadn't even remembered what the job was - it was no longer listed. We arranged to speak at 1:30pm and she called me at 2:30 when I was no longer available. So we rescheduled for the next morning at 9am. I arranged my whole morning around this call and she finally called at 10:15, again when I was no longer available. Both times she was apologetic in a perfunctory way and kept telling me how busy she was with other meetings and calls. I don't care. Have common curtesy and shoot me an email telling me you have to cancel. Terrible first impression. I will not continue to pursue this.
