    I worked at Ceres full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, great mission. Mindy Lubber's leadership is great. Nice benefits and apple laptops.

    Cons

    Limits to upward mobility, low salaries. Middle management isn't always great. Sometimes the balance between effort and payoff is a little off - I think they can value their work and time more highly.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better paths to advancement for junior employees; provide better management training

    I have been working at Ceres full-time

    Pros

    Ceres is full of some of the smartest, most passionate people I have ever worked with. Almost every day there is a feat in the environmental world that somehow traces back to Ceres. Senior-level management is generally good, and their benefits are great. You can tell that this an organization that takes its mission seriously and cares about its people.

    Cons

    Like with any non-profit, salaries could be higher and management could be stronger. Lower-level employees are working above and beyond what their being paid. Some turnover, but generally people seem pretty happy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to the work load of those you manage. Make sure what you're asking of them is realistic under the guidelines of their job descriptions and salaries.
