    I have been working at Endeavor Global full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing corporate culture that is found in every office, from New York to Manila to Ecuador.

    Colleagues are all super sharp, friendly, and eager to help.

    With patience, employees will have a lot of room to grow and define their own roles.

    Cons

    Not all of the processes are professionalized. You have to be adaptable.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be highly cognizant of how their presence can incentivize entry-level employees.

    I worked at Endeavor Global full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to build soft skills, frequent international and domestic travel, lots of responsibility, networking (if you take advantage of chances to do so)

    Cons

    Dubious organizational goals, bewildering managerial decisions, senior leadership long past its fire-by date that wields capricious and inconsistent influence over daily minutiae

    Advice to Management

    Revenue is the single largest determinant of organizational decisions, whether you recognize it or not. It's worth considering whether this is a defensible state of affairs for a nonprofit organization.

    I worked at Endeavor Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After three years of working at Endeavor I recently left to pursue an MBA. I loved my time at the organization and walked into the office everyday filled with purpose and enthusiasm for our work. A few highlights:

    1) Culture & Team - The team (both in NYC and across the world) is filled with the smartest, most ambitious, fun-loving people I imagine I will ever have the privilege of working with. I consider many of my former coworkers life-long friends.

    2) Exposure & career growth - I started as an Associate at Endeavor with three years of prior work experience. Endeavor very quickly exposed me to a variety of skills -- managing others, communicating with high-level stakeholders, dissecting business models -- that were critical to my professional growth.

    3) Network - Endeavor is in the business of building close relationships with leading innovators in the most exciting growth markets around the world. Having access to this network was an incredible asset for me, and helped me identify where I hope to go next in my career.

    Cons

    Endeavor practices what it preaches by thinking BIG and growing FAST -- which means things are constantly changing. What I found most challenging at Endeavor was how often my role was evolving and how frequently the organization was being restructured to accommodate growth. While this is exciting and offers great opportunity, I don't think the organization is a great fit for someone who is not willing to be exceedingly agile and adaptive.

    I worked at Endeavor Global full-time

    Pros

    Mission-driven, flexible work environment, smart people, above average compensation for a non-profit. Lot's of opportunity to travel and to work with the world's best entrepreneurs.

    Cons

    The primary con about working at Endeavor is that there isn't significant upward mobility for junior staff. Typically people come and go within 2 years, but they almost always end up doing bigger things.
