    I have been working at Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for the Foundation and think it is full of great people doing admirable work. The organization has some of the best benefits offerings I've ever seen, including paid parental leave, tuition assistance, and a generous 403(b) match. It's a familial atmosphere that promotes events like 'EGPAF Trivia Night' and a companywide potluck Thanksgiving. Even small things, like upgraded coffee pots and silverware in the kitchens, indicate that employees are valued. My manager was extremely flexible with my schedule, which was great as I am a part-time student. While there's always a lot of work to be done, you can generally do it on your own terms to achieve that elusive 'work/life balance.' I would absolutely have stayed there longer if the job itself had been better aligned with my long-term professional goals.

    Cons

    Like any midsize NGO, the budget is tight and growth opportunities (in terms of promotions, not professional development) are limited. You have to be satisfied with your job and seek opportunities for professional growth (additional assignments, conferences, trainings, etc) to thrive. That said, employees are promoted from within fairly regularly.

    Pros

    Incredible mission and commitment. In country staff are excellent and have an excellent reputation in the field.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership and management. Staff are hired at leadership levels and remain even though they are poor performers and managers. Programmatic staff in particular are overworked and burnout is a problem. Little to no opportunity for growth and staff treated poorly with high turnover. Leadership ignores bad managers whose staff flee their teams, and continues to burn out or force out good employees who are workhorses for their department.

    I have been working at Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, generous healthcare and PTO benefits. Competitive salary options. Friendly atmosphere and good colleagues.

    Cons

    Senior leadership often gets in its own way and squanders growth opportunities. Team structure and organization tends to change about every two years. There isn't as much opportunity for growth for lower-level positions, but it can exist for loyal mid-senior management.

    I worked at Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people make every day going in enjoyable. As an entry level employee I was given many learning opportunities and guidance. My team worked together effectively and provided amazing trainings on HR related materials to staff. The HR World is very advanced for the NGO world. The benefits are outstanding and it is a very flexible work environment.

    Cons

    An ongoing theme is once an employee hits the two year mark (more for entry level positions) there is not an opportunity for growth. Communication between divisions could be better. Salaries could be higher but competitive for the NGO world.
