    I worked at National Kidney Foundation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The NKF does a good job of promotion from within although in some markets this is limited by the size of the office.

    Cons

    Field offices are small and staff are expected to wear multiple hats and don't always have the support needed.

    I worked at National Kidney Foundation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My experience at NKF overall wasn't bad. The atmosphere of the company was pretty laid back and everyone was very friendly. The environment and the people who put in good work. They truly believed in what they did and helping people.

    Cons

    Some of the departments were rather clique-y and sometimes different groups kept closely to themselves. Other than that it wasn't too bad working there.

    Advice to Management

    Pretty good overall. Hiring and promoting from within was a huge plus he company gets credit for.
