    I have been working at Sierra Club full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Motivated, enthusiastic, exceptionally talented coworkers; positive work culture with generous benefits for a nonprofit and union membership for most full-time employees.

    Cons

    Most people commit a lot of time and energy to their jobs, which can make for high expectations around output and caliber of work.

    Advice to Management

    While realizing that everyone always has too much on their plate, do prioritize strong onboarding to help new staffers get as up-to-speed as possible!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sierra Club (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I did a first round phone interview and then flew to DC for a second round group interview. They never got back to me about whether I got the job, even after 3 emails. No excuse for that. Got reimbursed for the travel though.
