Pros

Most of the staff here work really hard. They are dedicated to what they do and it shows. There are many well functioning systems in place such as Salesforce, Yammer, ect. They are flexible with working from home which is nice.

Cons

The leadership of BSR namely the CEO is a micromanager to the max. He is very risk adverse. Loves to talk about transparency yet will always give a politician answer and does not tell it straight. Disconnected as to what is actually happening in the company yet wants to be involved in all decisions made in the organization. That being said he is very detailed oriented which is actually his strongest suit.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Business for Social Responsibility full-time

    Pros

    You are working with adults that act like adults. For the most part, people own up to mistakes made as BSR's process is being established. Work hard / play harder. Employees are passionate about their work and take ownership.

    Cons

    Some employees/management act entitled and passive aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    Organization with a more defined end result would be nice. Always having the back of your team members is key as well as being a person of your word.
