    I worked at Council on Foundations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff at COF are amazing. They were some of the smartest, most effective colleagues I have ever had.

    Cons

    Leadership is a living nightmare. It is an extremely political environment--lots of backstabbing and maneuvering. It's an exhausting place to work and you are constantly forced to apologize for past, present, and future mistakes COF makes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff.

    I worked at Council on Foundations full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited Vacations is about the only benefit that stands out

    Cons

    Leadership was very "Diva" like. Did not provide leadership value nor really direct the organization.
