Mission: The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
I have been working at The Nature Conservancy full-time
For the most part, TNC is a good place to work. The offer good benefits -- 8% 401k match after 1 year with vesting after 3 years. Offer a range of healthcare options and cover domestic partners. The people are really great, the work is important. Overall, a good work environment with flexibility.
Vacation time isn't great -- only two weeks when you start, eventually four. Not a lot of staff diversity.
Advice to Management
Up the vacation time. Add flexible holidays so all staff can take off their holidays.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy in April 2017.
They interviewed over Skype for Business, and it's two to three people interviewing you at once, alternating who is asking the questions. This interview was with the Colorado chapter and I'm not sure if other chapters conduct their interviews in the same way. I have interviewed for them twice now, accepting the first offer for a seasonal position, and not receiving an offer for the second, although the processes were very similar.
