Pros

They do fascinating work. Admin jobs there are very frustrating in part because of this - you see great things going on around you with which you don't get a chance or have time to help.

Cons

Everyone's overworked. Some people are underpaid. Some of management shouldn't be there (the manager I had was one of the worst bosses I've met, let alone worked with).

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Look them in the eye. Don't try to control everything. Live a life outside of work.

    I have been working at Vera Institute Of Justice full-time

    Pros

    There is upward mobility -- several people have been promoted from within my department in the past year alone. There are clear expectations about what is expected from you and what constitutes success within a role. Good benefits and vacation and holiday time off is very good for a US nonprofit. HR is a supportive resource for everything from forms and transit questions to private coaching on how to approach conversations with department heads.

    Cons

    There is a certain degree of resistance to inter-departmental interaction, but that seems to be changing somewhat. The age and history of any institution like Vera means there will be a certain resistance to change from some long-term staff members, but overall, leadership is very forward-thinking and eager to embrace new techniques that are proven to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the reforming zeal of new staff members who are eager and equipped to improve existing systems.
