Pros

Good work-life balance, nice people at the low-mid levels. Good mission.

Cons

Terrible Executive leadership. God awful terrible. They take all the credit, have zero sense of self reflection. Very defensive and territorial culture. Mediocre, at best, for collaboration.

Advice to Management

Hopeless. Need to completely clean house in the entire officer suite

    Pros

    mission based organization which also delivers a useful product - some very nice people - some very talented and smart people - interesting and diverse workforce

    Cons

    mission and operations function not very well in sync - NIB runs like a for profit corp rather than the 501c3 it is which can be a plus but isn't - executive management does not want staff input and isn't open to new ideas

    I have been working at National Industries for the Blind full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NIB is a great place to work! In the 2.5 years that I have worked here, I have seen some truly amazing things. NIB is a well-structured company that seeks to do the right thing by its customers and by its employees. NIB makes some of the best products, has some of the smartest, most driven, and caring people around. NIB is a company that rewards hard work and results! When I arrive to work each day, I know that I am given the same opportunities as anyone else to demonstrate professional success, take on stretch opportunities, and develop my career. I appreciate that I have a voice at the table and that I am supported by all of my colleagues. NIB is truly a place of teaching and mentoring—an open environment that thrives on candor and transparency. I was impressed from day one!

    Cons

    You strive to produce great things because there is so much talent surrounding you!
