I worked at YourCause full-time (More than a year)
The people at YourCause are one of its greatest assets. Such a diverse and vibrant workforce of coworkers makes YourCause a great place to work.
The mission of the company is noble and YourCause's business model of not taking a percent of employee donations aligns with its ethics.
Transparency is a core pillar of this company in business and management style. Business decisions were thoroughly explained to everyone at regular scheduled all-hands meetings. This paired with team meetings and manager one-on-ones created a very informed and motivated workforce who were then free to move forward business goals without being micromanaged on a daily basis.
Luckily I had the best manager at the company. My manager was honest with feedback, available to chat, and was always prompt with performance reviews. Other departments weren't so lucky, which led to conflict, low employee confidence, and poor morale.
The hiring process was poorly communicated throughout.
Advice to Management
Provide more training to managers and leaders at the company.
Hire someone to help with hiring and on-boarding.
The benefits seem to be setup for a startup company who expects to hire young single employees. As YourCause continues to grow, it will need to expand family benefits to retain talent who are aging up and having children.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YourCause (Plano, TX).
I thought the whole process was unprofessional. I would never recommend this company to anyone. The CEO was extremely rude and literally asked me about my family. or how often do I talk to them.
