    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Democrats for Education Reform full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people for the most part are great, except the handful of diva state directors. Joe Williams, former Executive Director and now Board Member was absolutely amazing.

    Cons

    The new Executive Director, lawyer by trade, has made everything corporate-like, thus eliminating the family environment that used to be there. The "SLT" (Senior Leadership Team) has always succumbed to the diva State directors, who many times act like spoiled brats when they don't get their way, and throw temper tantrums knowing that they'll get their way in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Support your National team, don't just throw them under the bus. Hold everyone accountable, ESPECIALLY state-directors that do borderline illegal things and get away with it!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Democrats for Education Reform full-time

    Pros

    With the change in upper management and CEO (Joe Williams is no longer there), the only pro is that they used to pay for healthcare and will reimburse cellphones for those that use them for work.

    Cons

    Be wary, the culture is toxic with no want to change for the better. Men are promoted and paid more than women in this organization, and those that perform well and exceed are stifled and pushed out. Only management is encouraged to take time off and any time away from the office is not respected (for instance, constant emails, texts and calls with demands to be answered)

    Pros

    Good colleagues but the best are leaving or have already left.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no strategic planning or vision. Increased turnover in the last year that will continue until organization completely fails.
