    Pros

    Great Place to jump start your career if you are young! Great mission, awesome co-workers, everyone is nice and a team player. If you do a good job you will be able to advance and they will appreciate your job and make sure you stay ! You get to do a lot of things and learn how to wear different hats. They like to promote people within the organization instead of hiring from the outside. Amazing work life balance which helps with the non-profit salary. New CEO is on his way in and will definitely improve the organization. It's an exciting time to join TWC,

    Cons

    Some of the upper level managers, directors, and VPs, have different visions and conflicting goals for the organization, thus creating a lack of direction sometimes. Some people in managerial or director positions don't have any management or HR training and don't know how to properly manage staff. If you were in academics you might get burned out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring young smart and motivated people because you have a great team. Don't sacrifice the morale of the organization and employees just because a VP or director can supposedly get results. You will lose lower and mid level employees and those are who really drive the organization.
