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

Pros

Free brunch. Cool Co-workers/Team Leaders/Supervisors

Cons

No growth. No pay rise. Certain managers don't care about your well being.

Advice to Management

I understand it's all about the best of the business BUT the employees are the ones who keep your precious business running. Be kind to them and treat them well

    I have been working at Wildlife Conservation Society full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are working for an important cause. Having an office inside the beautiful Bronx Zoo certainly doesn't hurt either. The people are great and the work is challenging. If you are willing to work hard to define your role, you can make a significant contribution and expand your range of experiences. A self-motivated individual can make things happen.

    The new CEO is already making his presence felt and good things look to be coming out of this. A clearer vision and more precisely defined strategy should give WCS new life.

    Cons

    Direction has been missing at times. The organization is trying to do so many things that some, inevitably, fall through the cracks. The various parts of the organization don't always communicate as well as they might - a bit of a silo mentality exists, but it is getting better.

    It has been somewhat hierarchical and inflexible. Under the new CEO, this looks to change.

    Getting to and from the Bronx, via public transit, can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive. Break down the silo thinking by getting representatives from different departments talking earlier in a project and more frequently, throughout. Be willing to take risks and break new ground.
