    I have been working at National Wildlife Federation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun, passionate colleagues Decent benefits package Beautiful office, Family-oriented work culture

    Cons

    * Limited to no upward mobility * Low salaries, even for a non-profit * Limited bonuses * Performance review process is faulty and lacks recourse for employees * No management training; across the board, upper management lacks supervisory skills * Competition among departments rather than collaboration * Blatant, unequal treatment of employees by supervisors * Generational gap between upper management and the... rest of the office * General office cultural shift after election--used to be more like a family, now it's more like, why aren't we doing more? Why isn't our organization fighting harder? * CEO consistently uses organization for his political career/publicity * Low retention

    I worked at National Wildlife Federation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong reputation. Passionate members.

    Cons

    Major identity crisis organization. Struggles finding position between wildlife conservation, outdoorsmen/hunters/anglers, climate change advocates, kids/families outdoors, etc. Can't compete with boots on the ground conservation organizations. Their media spokesperson is now on a pet show. How weird and odd. Upper management were sliced and diced under new CEO but many wrong staff were cut. Lots of in-fighting and... money wasted.

    I worked at National Wildlife Federation

    Pros

    casual work environment flexible teleworking policy and good PTO some really amazing people work there (or used to)

    Cons

    no training for new hires no room for growth extremely weak, top-heavy management no communication between departments no transparency from upper management tense work environment with yearly waves of huge layoffs disorganized and confused programming the company consistently spends more money than it brings in.
