        I met some of the best people I've ever worked with, colleagues and clients alike. My colleagues were genuine inspirations who constantly demonstrated their dedication to the field. I also found there to be encouragement for career development if desired, usually in the form of trainings or side projects. Great and liberally approved PTO.


        Low pay is the number one issue you will hear at company-wide meetings. The CEO makes almost one million dollars (I wonder what his father would think) while you have people in the US and outside who have or want to pursue advanced degrees, but find the compensation does not reflect these credentials or encourage this goal. I also found myself fundamentally disagreeing with a lot of funder guidelines. The American government being what it is, there is a lot of pocket watching of the poorest people in the country. On the employment team, you also have to encourage and witness your clients suffer through some of the most horrible employers - meat packing plants, chain restaurants, assembly line manufacturers. At what point is the IRC importing race to the bottom employment to the United States?

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
