Great work environment w/ really cool and smart people. Some very interesting campaign ideas.
I don't have any cons. I would say that I wish I could have stayed on permanently.DoSomething.org Response7y

You will be surrounded by passionate people who are definitely not working hard because of the compensation – they are there because they feel something deeper. Upper management is great and extremely competent (which is not always reflected in some of the inefficient processes that are used) which definitely influences the rest of the team.
Compensation is subpar. Too many meetings. Work from home is an underutilized tool. There is no clear path to progressing in the organization. Your progression will largely depend on folks' attitude towards you and not your work output/ performance. The previous comments regarding favoritism are certainly confirmed and true. Upper management is great – middle management needs to drastically improve. Open office environment which is great for collaboration – terrible for focusing and getting work done without being constantly knocked out of your own focus. Often extremely cold in the office – like ridiculously cold. The experience overall is draining to the extent that you will feel your spirit slowly but surely deteriorating.9

DoSomething was an awesome place to work. Inspiring leaders, fun work environment, work that means something. I'd highly recommend the internship to anyone looking for a top notch not-for-profit.
No cons to speak of, I loved it.

- Great work environment and company culture - Many collaborative projects (across departments) - Good work/life balance (I didn't work here as a full-time staff member, but I gauged that from my interactions)
- Compensation (but I guess that's just the downside of working in a non-profit)1

Very positive learning experience! Supervisor was tremendously supportive and was invested in making sure that I learned from the internship. I didn't feel like just an 'intern'- I was given real responsibilities. It's also a fun, young, work environment.
Can't think of any!

Really fun work environment. The people are by far the best part of the job.
The campaigns never really had as much of an impact as the org would like you to think. Many are flashy and cool, but when it comes to actually making a difference, not much actually happens.4

- Good culture overall - Great mission (making the world suck less!) - Excellent work environment (new huge office, casual-ish dress code)
- Can be clique-y, people tend to stay within their own social circles based on department - Salaries decent overall for the NFP world, but very low for technology dept. - Hard to get ideas off the ground running (for some) as there are many layers of management as they've been growing4

Great, fun work environment! A lot of interesting things going on in the office. They do promote from within.
Mission Statement is kind of weak. While they "try" to empower teens into action, it really is only a set of select teens that are actually active.
