    I have been working at National Kidney Foundation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The organization is in "growth mode" and brings the opportunity to be bold, creative and innovative. I've found the work to be mission-driven and professionally challenging. I've also found that I'm able to work both collaboratively and autonomously. There has been a culture in my almost 2 years of NOT sending/answering Emails past 6pm and NOT on the weekends.

    Cons

    Growth mode means leaning into the organization without fear - it does mean weekend work related to programs and fundraising events (walk golf, galas)meeting and exceeding revenue targets, being a fearless fundraiser and tireless advocate Chronic Kidney Disease awareness, prevention and treatment. All of which aren't so much cons as they are the opportunities within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the foot on the gas pedal while continuing to focus on culture of the organization.
