    "Ineffective Senior Leadership"

    I have been working at KaBOOM! full-time

    Pros

    Solid benefits. Smart, hard-working staff.

    Cons

    At first glance, working at this nonprofit seems appealing. Don’t be fooled. The staff morale is extremely low for the reasons mentioned in other reviews: the intense focus on flexible revenue vs. mission; no real strategy for how the revenue will further the mission; CEO is a bully; senior leadership is ineffective and uninspiring; poor work-life balance; feedback and ideas are ignored; and staff is not empowered. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to improve since it’s those at the top who are responsible for this unhealthy environment.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits: lots of PTO, great health insurance, 403(b), flexible schedule

    Cons

    Pay is very poor for low-mid level employees compared to senior management. Unclear how to advance in my role.
