    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    if you are in programs or science, but even then they misappropriate their funds

    Cons

    mean people, bad managers, 2 to 1 manager to laborer ratio, high turnover rate, incompetent employees. most people at Defenders are just waiting to find a better job in the same field at WWF, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, or some other environmental or conservation non-profit. the membership and development departments are totally over inflated, administration is terrible, financial statements are shady and some are outright lies. the president is out of touch and needs to retire.

    Advice to Management

    expand maternity leave, trust your employees until you have reason not to, do not condescend to laborers, lower your salary
