Pros

The mission is terrific - matching organ donors and recipients. Most of the people are really nice and caring. The company is very family-oriented. Work-life balance is strongly supported. The company tries really hard - sometimes too hard - not to fire people. When a layoff occurred - once in the 6 years that I was there, due to a re-organization - the company tried really hard to find jobs for those affected within the company and provided outplacement services. The benefits are surprisingly good for a non-profit, though the low pay makes it hard for all employees to fully participate.

Cons

Most of the pay is comparable with that of other non-profits, but the pay for QA personnel is poor, even by non-profit standards. Company-wide, pay adjustments are based more on longetivity than on performance and responsibility. Professional development is not offered at all. There is no tuition reimbursement. There is no room for career growth. HR exists almost solely to process personnel transactions and resolve conflicts.

Advice to Management

Increase the pay of QA personnel to be comparable with other non-profits, at least. In some areas, such as IT, place more emphasis on functional knowledge than on clinical knowledge. Tie pay more to responsibility and performance and less to longetivity. Barely competent employees should not make more than their managers.

    I worked at United Network for Organ Sharing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Obviously their mission - to save lives. Great place for moms to work.

    Cons

    I wasn't going to write this review except in the year since I left UNOS, I have run into more people who say "Oh, wow, they really burn thru people there." That statement validated the way I felt - lots of turn over - lot of very unhappy people. This place is run on spreadsheets and meetings. SO many meetings to share information that should be passed on at the director level or at least known at the mid-manager level. There's a lot of talk of process improvement or change management but they really don't want to change. And god help you if you have good ideas on how something could be done better.... the lifers will shoot you down and tell you it doesn't need to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications so line employees can do their jobs at attend fewer meetgins.
