    I have been working at NFP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, nice office, happy coworkers, team building activities, jeans on Fridays

    Cons

    No company-provided snacks, location on 360 is undesirable, casual dress and WFH are not as widely accepted here yet. The Austin job market is competitive and many employers allow WFH.

    Advice to Management

    Consider work from home options and casual dress every day.

    Pros

    There are some nice people that work there.

    Cons

    If I could give this company a less than 1 star rating, I would. Terrible environment. Run, don't walk away!

    "Incredibly formative internship experience"

    Pros

    Most formative internship experience I've had. Through the internship program and relevant to my position, I received training and development which opened the door to many opportunities I didn’t know existed prior to my experience. My internship was hand-on work in a cross-functional environment; it was rewarding to see how my efforts benefitted the company overall.

    Additionally, there’s plenty of opportunities to build relationships with high level executives. While also learning about the workings of corporate culture, my skill sets were strengthened because the executive team was genuinely interested in the company’s interns. This was a highlight for me. Executives and co-workers also have great interests personal tastes (music, literature, film, food, etc), and I genuinely enjoyed spending time with them outside of work. These things are important to me, so this additional component was neat.

    If you’re interning here, be sure to ask employees out for lunch, coffee, or drinks (if they haven’t already asked you). They are glad to invest their time into you and will do all they can to guarantee your success in future endeavors. In all, I finished my internship with excitement about my future.

    Cons

    Communication was lacking at times, especially concerning future employment opportunities. Some employees had been sitting in the same desks with the same positions for years, and I wasn’t sure if this was because of work ethic or reasons out-of-their-control. The company is constantly acquiring new businesses and this certainly has an effect on who moves up, who stays, and who goes. Despite receiving offers elsewhere, I would have loved to have continued working at NFP after graduation (and expressed this) but it seemed that the stars had to align perfectly for an opportunity to be made available.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback to interns. Be honest about whether future opportunities within the company are available or not, and why.

    Pros

    NFP has a great culture and brand. Employees understand the direction of the company and work to achieve results.

    Cons

    Difficult to view benefits and PTO time internally. They are beginning to transition to a new system.

    Thanks for the review. We’re working hard to build NFP’s people centric culture. Bringing up a new HRIS isn’t easy, but we’re getting there. Thanks for your patience.

    I have been working at NFP full-time

    Pros

    NFP provides plenty of opportunities to help build your career and achieve success. I am going on four years with the company and have always felt that I was more than just a number as other companies tend to make you feel. Management take time to work with you and you are provided a challenge daily. All in all, one of the best places I've worked.

    Cons

    Location is probably the worst part of NFP. It is located south Austin on 360 and traffic does tend to get heavy. Depending on where you are traveling from, it could take an hour to arrive so plan accordingly.

    I have been working at NFP (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is flexible on hours worked and if they are in the office or not.
    People that work up there are nice.
    Take the 7/24 as many times as you want but not many others.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime required
    Management knows there's a people issue but hire temps instead of full time employees.
