I worked at Odell Simms & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I worked there for four years and found it to be an incredible springboard for my career. If the executive team trusts in your abilities, you will have a ton of responsibility and independence. The work is interesting and you get to work on behalf of nonprofits without the nonprofit culture.

Cons

The culture is pretty conservative - read two older men run the show. The company is generally pretty dated in their model. Growth opportunities are very limited. There is very little training or mentoring, unless you get an executive's attention.

Advice to Management

Promote the amazing young women you hire to be managers and leaders. Invest in outside trainings. Evolve your business model a bit to keep up with the times.

    Pros

    OSL listens to their employees and tries to make it a win win environment. They truly value their employees and treat them as family.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, there was no potential for growth.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people who work here (not upper management) are nice enough. The coffee machine (that doesn't belong to them) is also a nice plus.

    Cons

    Everything. Pay is terrible, work is terrible. Very boring work and very low pay. The location is super far away from D.C. Upper management treats everyone like they are useless and interchangeable (confuses names or doesn't even know your name - in a company with 10 employees). Recently laid off half the staff and didn't even manage to do it professionally. A shame of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Just close down shop.
