    Pros

    good pay. Volunteer matching grant program.

    Cons

    Middle management is no longer functional and it's affecting the entire organization. Hiring external 3rd and 4th level management has led to 2nd and 3rd level managers carving ridiculous and overlapping boundaries arbitrarily.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the middle management mess.
