    Pros

    If there was a strategic plan in place and if the organization actually followed its mission to save cat's lives then this would be an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there is no strategic plan, campaigns and programs are never implemented yet the halfway achieved campaigns and programs are used for fundraising purposes. There is a lack of trust by senior leadership and no one stays long enough! There is zero work/life balance. The COO actually doesn't even know what the term means. There is no HR department. No accountability for senior staff- the rules do not apply to them. You are expected to answer phone calls and texts no matter what the time of the day is or if you're on vacation or holiday.

    Pros

    Love working here, we are very focused on having huge impact to stop killing of cats. For such a small team, we have had tremendous across the country in saving cats and changing laws. I am so proud of our work and my team members. I now think of them as some of my best friends. I love the dedication and passion of the executive team. They work late nights and almost every weekend.

    Cons

    its hard when we cant save every cat, although we try. The metro commute has been bad because of the metro work. -

    I would call this place a joke, but that would be ignoring the real damage they do

    Pros

    Benefits and pay, but that's it

    Cons

    -Leadership: The founder is prime example of founder's syndrome. She has too much control over the organization she founded, even though it has grown beyond her ability to manage. She micromanages everything, to the point of nothing getting done. That would be bad enough, but even worse is that she was horrible to employees. At best she's rude, snapping at people and making them bend to her every whim, acting like we had nothing better to do than serve her, instead of doing our real jobs. At worst, she's emotionally abusive and makes employees cry. -Work Environment: During my time there, the COO was so paranoid that she separated conversations if people were talking together for "too long." People were scared to go out to lunch together and close office doors. There's no HR department, so there is nowhere for people to go with these problems. There's also no board oversight for questionable management and financial practices. -High employee turnover: It's a fact of life. Once in the span of about five days, four people left. Two were unjustly fired and two quit and walked out on the spot, which I wish I could say was rare during my time there.
