    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at NWEA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits and pay and the mission are great. However, the new CEO seems to be moving towards temp contractors without the same benefits.

    Cons

    New CEO wants to make his mark and thinks they need a lot fewer employees. They just had a round of summer soft layoffs. Other departments were told they couldn't replace anyone who left. They dropped a project we made a multi-year commitment to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to people about the budget and all the layoffs. You're losing the best people when we see that our jobs aren't safe and that people who leave aren't replaced. I had one foot out the door as soon as those layoffs started.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits! 6 week PTO, 403b employer contributions, great health benefits.

    Cons

    Too political, sometimes too much collaboration and takes long time to make decisions and get things done.
