    I worked at Education Pioneers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual work environment with a mission you can get behind. Excellent results on the program side. The Fellowship experience is really valuable.

    Cons

    Under qualified management, constant turnover, three times as much work as is reasonable, low pay (although probably comparable to other non-profits).

    Advice to Management

    Stop the cycle of constant turnover: Current work load takes a 70+ hour work week plus travel; staff up where needed; don't increase goals/targets until something is working smoothly. Decrease internal meetings which literally take up a full 8 hours a day, and give more recognition of work that is being done by employees.
