    Advice to Management

    At this point, I think the entire organization should probably be revamped and start from scratch; or within the next 5-7 years, it may no longer exist. Their new strategic plan for 2013 is suppose to direct the COF in a different direction. Hopefully, this will work. There has been so many changes that one can only keep their fingers crossed.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Council on Foundations full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Location was good. Salary was average. Benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Management had no direction nor feel for staff morale. When decisions had to be made and communicated to staff it was never done in a timely or effective manner. The result was a staff member deeply divided and suspicious of all management. People who were fair towards the people they managed were dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house.
