I have been working at PATH full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great work, great reputation in the industry, work/life balance, location! I am hopeful that the new CEO will turn this place around (the McKinsey consultants were on board on his first day I think...) but it's going to take a few years to feel the results.

Cons

Employee career paths, development and retention; 1200 person org with some very outdated systems and processes

Advice to Management

Value and grow your employees- you attract the best people but the org needs a 180 to keep them. What a wasted investment! You go in excited, and you leave feeling burned.

    Pros

    Mission driven, very intelligent people, great benefits including vacation and sick leave, excellent office location in Seattle

    Cons

    If you are working in an admin role you have zero room to grow and advance to another career. Getting a promotion is practically a lost cause. They hire for the position, not the person.

    Advice to Management

    Create better opportunities for climb the ladder.

    I have been working at PATH full-time

    Pros

    World-class nonprofit.
    Incredible mission and dedicated staff.
    Smart, well adjusted coworkers in many areas throughout the organization.
    Well resourced for a nonprofit.
    History of thoughtful leadership.
    Pretty family friendly.

    Cons

    Growth and change, including a new president and top executives, are creating a lot of upheaval throughout the organization. There's a desire by new leadership to "take it to the next level," but little recognition of the hard and excellent work that has brought the organization to this point.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the end goal and trust your people to get you there. Listen to those who have brought PATH this far. During times of transition like this, you only lose the good ones.
