    Pros

    Artez is a progressive and innovative fundraising company where employees are valued, clients are well supported, and there's clearly defined strategy & mission. If you are determined, focused, and take initiative & pride in your work, then there's no restriction on your growth or professional development. Artez listens to it's employees and clients, which is lost artful these days. As a private company, they are not slaves to Wall Street or the shareholders. Unlike the competition, this allows Artez to focus and respond swiftly to its users, clients, partners, and the nonprofit market. Employees are skilled, happy and motivated, there's a healthy work & home balance, compensation is fair, and the company is growing and expanding internationally. Client retention is healthy, feedback is positive, and management is self-aware and engaged. The work is challenging, stimulating, we are making a positive change in the world, and this all makes for a productive and satisfactory holistic experience.

    Cons

    Some key staff (not all, but some) are younger or inexperienced, so they may lack the skill set or knowledge to execute their jobs efficiently. Marketing/Advertising budget is relatively small compared to competition. Took some time to evolve employees' mindset from being a development shop / pro services company into a Product company. Could benefit from more seasoned resources in product web development.

    Advice to Management

    Let's get this done!
