    Great people to work with, full of personality

    People can be mean to you
    (Ladies) people will probably hit on you several times a day

    This not for profit is a group of scientists and doctors. Researchers and people that truly care about and know about the state of our planet Earth. To raise funds with them is an honor. I gained incredible knowledge about the state of our environment.

    Standing in the heat in down town Los Angeles. Bring a hat and lots of water.

    Keep up the great work.

    I worked at Greenpeace part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with different people, traveled throughout Los Angeles during shifts and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    You need to meet a quota to stay an employee which I found hard to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep your employees without having them meet a quota. The sales environment takes away the fun and joy of working for the environment.
