    I have been working at Starlight Children's Foundation full-time (More than a year)


    There isn't a business that doesn't have some issue, but generally, Starlight is a good place to work and employees are met with fairness and opportunity. There are however, expectations set against us, as there should be. The expectation is for employees to either possess or gain knowledge around essential things that effect the business - financials, programs, partners, non-profit legalities, impact, mission, technology, etc. Well-run businesses do not allow employees to make up the rules as they see fit, but rather require them to follow a prescribed set of non-negotiables and then create around those. I feel empowered at Starlight, but I also am well aware that to be successful, I have to be a team player and follow some basic policies and procedures.


    It's true, there aren't any windows on our floor in our very beautiful office tower in Century City. However, the sun is right downstairs and a couple of trips down the elevator solves for having no windows. It's more important to me that the space is donated and Starlight only plays $12 a year in overhead - making donor impact far more significant than it would be otherwise.
