    Amazing benefits, pay not so much

    Pros

    its a non profit so obviously not getting paid in big bucks, but the benefits are amazing; 2 paid weeks off for Christmas time, 1 paid week off in summer, and every federal holiday. they are super progressive which is a plus in my book, always trying to be inclusive and make people comfortable. they also don't micromanage and have work from home available

    Cons

    pay isn't amazing, and the site manager role gets it the worse.... way too much work for the 60,000 a year
