Pros

The idea you will help the world, animals, make a "difference" in some small way. Think again.

Cons

Just not worth it! You will be taken advantage of and treated poorly as shown by others here at Glassdoor.com & similar sites. People are disposable and not even "recyclable".

Advice to Management

Do not make promises you cannot (or intend not) to keep. That is just plain hurtful in every aspect to your new employee.
There is a reason why on employee contract that says "You can be terminated at any time." Are bells going off?
The facade of caring for conservation and wildlife does not -- in any way, shape or form, -- translate to caring for, treatment or fairness of employees. Maybe even legally. Those who have been there for two decades or more have a reserved spot but their spots are shaking, too, by arrogance. The rest of the "lowers" are food for a crow (or the Birds of Prey).
Future employees and desperate people looking for a job -- ANY job -- there is a distinct possibility that working for WCS will only ruin your self-esteem and time. Think before you decide upon an interview. Do your research. Read what other people say on this site and others before you decide to between WCS and an organization with a much better record for treating employees right.
And if you have advanced degrees..........do not be seduced by the idealism of helping the plant. Your efforts will in no way save the world (nor yourself). Find a more reputable organization with proof of "fair play" to spend your energy and time.

    I worked at Wildlife Conservation Society full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to this job or company that I saw.

    Cons

    poor treatment of staff. hard to move ahead/ lack of growth. worked 60+ hours per week with no recognition. some staff would sleep over because they had to leave so late and be back again so early.

    Advice to Management

    care more. HR department was a joke - 90% of department quit and they didn't think something was wrong?
