I've found College Board to be an excellent place to work. They value their employees and treat us with respect. While working here, I've grown so much as an engineer and I love the team I'm working with.
With any big organization that's been around for a while, there a lots of moving parts and many systems that can be difficult to get familiar with.4College Board Response8mo

-Great work environment overall. -Team has several talented individuals who are willing to help each other. - Majority are remote and looks like it will continue that way. -Food and refreshments are served for people attending the 2 days at the Reston office.
-Excellence Awards is enforced upon the team by Executive Director Leadership- people are constantly "encouraged" to write about their team mates if they don't want it to reflect badly on the team and individuals. -Executive Directors have created a insulated buffer between upper Management VPs and the teams so everything gets managed up. The underlying issues of unnecessary overwork, micromanagement, excessive meetings and wastage of resources never surface to upper management. -Encouragement to provide team and project feedback is met with severe backlash from Leadership who don't want PowerFaids upper management disturbed with any grievances whatsoever. - People are constantly shuffled around on a monthly basis with recommendations from leadership Executive Directors. Team members are forced to thank leadership for making the decisions for them and the project. -One on one sessions with Executive Directors are specifically used to interrogate and source extra information about other team members.
