I have been working at UJA-Federation of New York full-time
As an organization, UJA does incredible work. They are the largest local philanthropy in the world, and as such are capable of responding to challenges in ways other nonprofits cannot.
They promote from within where appropriate. They offer a variety of professional development courses. They have a generous vacation policy and offer other non-financial benefits.
There is a pervasive culture of fear and disrespect. Compensation is below market rate. Performance reviews are down only. Workloads are egregious. The staff does not grow in proportion to the organization's impact in the community. Promotions are a doubling of workload, not a change in responsibilities.
Advice to Management
Change the culture and compensate fairly.
The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UJA-Federation of New York.
Applied through NYU CLIP, which was it's own application process. Then had an interview with UJA. Very straightforward and informational gauging your interest. It was on the phone and all behavioral.
