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

    Pros

    Strong leaders that have a passion for people. Personal development and promoting from within are core values. Work life balance is valued and leaders set the example. The work day has clear boundaries and people work their 8 hour day and turn the phone off when they get home (a rarity in this industry). Leadership is focused on employees being engaged and happy at work and constantly touching base to make sure your development needs are being met.
    Everyone takes their vacation time. I've worked at several other competing firms but NFP seems to really have a handle on how to balance work and life.

    Cons

    Like other organizations, teams can start to work as a silo if cross-communication between teams isn't facilitated. Thankfully NFP has recognized this and sets up regular times for teams to meet and share ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and continue to choose the right people to join our team. It is better to have a small team of positive strong performers than bring on people who will negatively impact us. Please continue the focus on people first, it is so rewarding to work for a company that recognizes the need for a life outside of work and encourages a balance!

    I have been working at NFP full-time

    Pros

    NFP supports work/life balance and career growth. The people are great to work with and always motivating each other.

    Cons

    Although we are one team, the office space puts us into silos so we don't see each other that much in the office. I think if we opened the space up it would allows us to work together more closely as ONE NFP.

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback whether it's positive or negative. This helps employees grow and become more comfortable doing what they do.

    Pros

    Excellent management team. Many opportunities for career growth. Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Compensation is below the industry standard. Different expectations depending on the "Team" or office you work for. Long hours and a high work volume but could be the right fit for a highly motivated individual

    Pros

    Most of management team is great at making employees feel valued, heard and appreciated, emphasis on work/life balance, management genuinely cares about your development and satisfaction, incredible co-workers

    Cons

    Training program is not yet streamlined or formalized, workload not balanced across departments or teams. If you're good at your job, take proactive steps to avoid taking on work of 2+ people because changes don't happen fast

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great vision/strategic drive (long term) for the firm overall, don't lose sight of how increasing efficiency/balance of departments and teams in the short term could help keep the good employees. Not everything needs to be a slow process when everyone agrees that there is an issue and clear solution - rip the bandaid off
