    I worked at Jobs for the Future full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries
    Ability to travel all of the US
    Most people knowledgeable about their work
    The mission

    Cons

    The senior management
    Poor career pathways
    Top-heavy salary and management structure
    Extremely disorganized as an organization
    Did I mention senior management?

    Advice to Management

    Stop handsomely rewarding yourselves for a job that is not done. Not meeting the requirements of funders and stakeholders and not taking responsibility at the senior level is unacceptable. Stop terminating lower-level employees and take a look in the mirror if you want to know why the organization is failing. Finally, quit gifting yourselves with 5-figure bonuses. . Que diablo!

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, good benefits, good pay, good mission

    Cons

    Does not use funds well--senior management is in some cases very poor. People are promoted to management positions without having any human management experience, just project management. As a result, there are some really bad mangers who cannot work with other people, and no work is done to correct or develop these people as managers.
