    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, atmostphere, great communication among employees and management, pretty good benefits early in career, somewhat immune to economic flucuations

    Cons

    Seasonal, somewhat limited room for advancement, there are a few bad employees, some of whom are gatekeepers, but there are workarounds

    Advice to Management

    Apply the rules to everyone, monitor hours a little more closely

    Pros

    HRC U, the internship program, created community between the interns and HRC staff. I had real responsibility and felt valued while also contributing and learning LOTS.

    Cons

    It was an unpaid internship (this has since changed), which was difficult financially.

    The Human Rights Camapign is full of friendly people in a nice and open environment

    Pros

    Work environment is extremely welcoming. Transitioning into to job is very easy. Easy access to public transportation

    Cons

    No complaints really. If anything during my internship, there was sometimes a little too much down where there was a gap in substantive work.

    Advice to Management

    They should make it easier for interns to connect with upper level manage to explore possibilities for future employment.

    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HRC is a highly-effective non-profit organization that is results-oriented, uses the best from the for-profit and non-profit world strategies, highly-innovative/entrepreneurial and values-based.
    A great jumping off point for anyone who wants to establish themselves as a leader in public advocacy and development.

    Cons

    Due to organizational size and specialized experience required by most positions, upward mobility for high performers at higher levels is limited.
    The climate is extraordinarily fast-paced and unless you're someone who can thrive in that atmosphere, it can be a challenging place to work from a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    The organization is incredibly focused on winning, which it should. At the same time however, it must also have a long-term strategy of investing in its people, which it is starting to make major investments.

    "Awesome Place to Work"

    Pros

    The Human Rights Campaign is truly an amazing place to work. The environment is one of "work hard, play hard", everyone is very goal driven and passionate about the their work.

    Cons

    It's a smaller office which can provide some downsides. Additionally, as a nonprofit it can sometimes run in to resource constraints, however every attempt is made to fully utilize all resources available in an efficient manner.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stretch the boundaries and reach for the impossible. The work you do is incredibly important, keep it up.

  8. "Working for equality with the Human Rights Campaign"

    Pros

    The people are truly amazing and everyone working there has a strong passion to drive them to meet their goals.

    Cons

    In my experience, the management is a bit disorganized, but that's mostly due to the fact that I have free reign over my schedule. I don't really answer to anyone in specific, nor does my progress or work get logged in any measurable way.

    Advice to Management

    Have concrete goals for employees to reach, a daily / weekly milestone to show their progress along that goal would also facilitate reaching goals better.

    None

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Laid-back environment with a high energy staff. Very bright and open setting. HRC is highly strategic in the work that it does and plans out strategies excellently.

    Cons

    Sometimes Senior Management can treat other staff like they are below them. Sometimes "favorites" get away with doing very little while other staff is loaded down with work. Compensation could be higher for entry level staff
