    I have been working at May Institute full-time

    Pros

    I've been here just 5 months now and came from a Fortune 500 - the difference in the way employees are treated, supported and recognized is amazing. May Institute goes out of its way to ensure employees are treated with respect and dignity. I feel lucky to have been selected to join this team. Beside the culture described above, May also has progressive benefits - including a new tuition forgiveness program, 403B with a company match (not too many organizations doing that anymore!), as well as traditional medical, dental, etc. I also just received a birthday card and present from May Institute and was surprised to learn all employees get this on their birthday - as well as a PAID Birthday Holiday to use in the month of your birth!! Made me feel great!! :)

    Cons

    We are a non-profit - doing great work, but that leaves the compensation a bit on the lighter side in a competitive market. For me - the difference in the quality of life I now have, and the added benefit of supporting the direct care staff make up for any gap in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing your employees, and keep supporting them in their field work -stay the course!
