    I have been working at Share Our Strength full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The organization has a great culture and work environment. Colleagues are fun, work is challenging but manageable, and the environment is positive and fun. You won’t be expected to work late hours or be available by email after you leave the office. There are a lot of fun events and team building activities.

    Cons

    Too much free food in the office makes it hard for people trying to diet or lose weight! Also salaries are very transparent, and while they are typical for nonprofits, I don’t feel at times they match the level of work expected for some positions. Growth opportunities are at the complete discretion of your manager making a case to HR, and if not, you’re out of luck. Internal promotion is not preferred.
