    I worked at Council on Foundations full-time

    Pros

    Good vacation policy but it comes at a high cost! Terrible leadership, can't balance a budget (the CEO and executives are overpaid and lack basic business experience), and worst part: NO accountability for anything. You can basically get away with murder and they will never figure it out.

    Cons

    It's hard to pick one single thing but I would probably start with the culture is DEPRESSING! Always problems but never any solutions. The leaderships always points fingers and never take responsibility for anything. Also, who wants to work in a place that will probably close doors soon because they can't figure out how to balance the budget. Here is a hint: stop over paying miserable and useless executives!

    Advice to Management

    Go away. No one likes you or respects you in the field. Now that I am on the other side, I can see and hear how the sector basically has no respect for the work you do.

    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.
