Proud to work hereAnonymous EmployeeCurrent Employee
Working for a mission driven organization is fulfilling both personally and professionally. It's hard work, and there are high expectations throughout the organization. Having a supportive manager and leadership team has made a difference especially during COVID, with lots of flexibility for self care. I appreciated transparency with commitments around DEI pre 2020, and definitely support the work that is being continued over the last year and a half. Also appreciate competitive pay and benefits benchmarking.
-Small team, definitely can be an all hands environment when not expecting it. -Sometimes communication is unclear -COVID caused some turnover over the last year and a half, definitely has been challenging with staffing

Working at Lovin' spoonfuls is genuinely refreshing. From frontline Food Rescue Coordinators to senior leadership, most everyone on the team seems to genuinely want to be here and cares deeply about the mission and each other. Management values employees' feedback and ideas, supports their professional growth and development, and holds them to the same high (but fair) standard of excellence to which they hold themselves. Spoonfuls is a logistics company operating in the non-profit space. Around the table are people with real business acumen and a commitment to innovation and operational efficiency which shows in our work. Reasonable work/life balance.
Not a con necessarily (or at all): We're scrappy. It's a carry-over from our start-up years but, a decade (plus) into business, there are few of us who aren't willing to roll up our sleeves to support a project that's a little outside our wheelhouse. That might not be for everyone.

The team of Food Rescue Coordinators are wonderfully human people, dedicated to working in their communities to more equitably distribute food. The driving job is straightforward and rewarding.
The FRC team has significant long-standing issues with management. There is a paternalistic approach to management, poor people skills, and an occasionally condescending tone toward the FRC team. The decisions made by management -- often in spite of the wider team being vocally opposed or intentionally not included -- contributes greatly to widespread burnout and sense of powerlessness in the team of drivers.3
