    I worked at Creative Commons full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful global mission and ideals. Lots of room to explore innovative approaches to global issues. A handful of affiliate groups around the world doing amazing regional work.

    Cons

    Leadership in constant flux, awkward funding strategy, high-stress work environment. Absentee board of directors and internal politics stalled progress from 2011-2014. New CEO (Merkeley) started mid-2014, then fired more than 1/3 of staff at the beginning of 2015 without warning or cause.
