I worked at Edify full-time (More than 3 years)
An early stage non-profit that is nimble and has a willingness to pursue the best strategy to make a positive impact. It has a very entrepreneurial culture where "the best idea wins". For being a young non-profit, the organization has had tremendous funding and growth. However, the most impressive aspect is probably the caliber of leadership in the organization, both in the U.S. and overseas.
Part of being an entrepreneurial organization means the need to be a self-starter. Often, there is limited guidance and oversight from management. This is great if you have a vision and want to be empowered to go get it done, but not so great if you thrive on structure, clear objectives and consistent guidance along the way.
You are paid well. Considering what the company does, the benefits are pretty good. The office is located on beautiful Las Olas Boulevard.
Although well paid, your pay may be as much as $10, 000 less than your colleague performing the same function and having the same title. Your vacation may be cancelled at the last minute. Your vacation may also be interrupted by an "emergency" back at the office. There is no real "H.R." department, things that are said around the office or that occur may not be "office p.c."
Advice to Management
When your most "seasoned" employee has been around for less than a year in a certain department, they may be a problem. Please poll your employees and find out what they are feeling and why they feel turnover is high. Turnover is an expense that can be kept to a minimum. A high salary is not the only way to keep an employee happy. Respectful managers help.
