    I have been working at ITHAKA full-time


    Mission driven, smart people, great organizational culture, and senior management team that really cares. It's a fast paced and ambitious organization. Also very transparent and ethical.


    It's not really a con, but the work is complex and challenging. If you don't like to work hard and be held accountable, this is not the place for you.
