    I worked at Born Free USA full-time

    Pros

    Good mission, small company to get feet wet in meaningful issues.

    Cons

    Upper management lacked trust, pitted other employees against each other, and was very hostile when employees left for other opportunities.


  2. "ineffective and dysfunctional"

    Pros

    Dedicated staff. Great mission. Fantastic Sanctuary.

    Cons

    The organization’s effectiveness is increasingly diminishing under ineffective and dysfunctional management/leadership.

    There is no HR department or qualified HR representative. Concerns about management or inappropriate behavior are either disregarded or met with outright hostility from the CEO. The current CEO seems to have acquired his position in the organization via cronyism leaving staff with little hope of redress or change.

    The current leadership seems satisfied to simply report on, and tag on to, or take credit for, the activities lead by other organizations. As a result, newsletters and fundraising mailers often paint a misleading picture of what work is actually being done and how funds are being spent.


  3. "Wastes money and the CEO will hit on you relentlessly"

    I worked at Born Free USA full-time

    Pros

    A good cause
    The people are great

    Cons

    The board members spend gross amounts of money on places like expensive steak houses and having their laundry professionally done. The CEO will flirt with you and hit on you relentlessly (he's also married with a kid). Look at the staff they have on their website. All young, cute girls. This is no coincidence.
