      Pros

      TNTP really tries to balance work and life. There are multiple structures in place to advocate for how you spend your time: from choosing projects, discussing time allocations, or raising concerns with managers. If managers are ineffective, there's structures to ensure that they can be reported. TNTP tries to cultivate an inclusive culture, and there is still progress to be made, but I've never worked anywhere more affirming and humanizing.

      Cons

      They can offer more competitive salaries and it's more difficult to advance with their internal hiring process versus promotions based on doing excellent work. They'll say you're valued and give you "stretch opportunities", but realistically you'll wind up doing work for a level above you without being promoted to that level.

      The Culture is not great

      Pros

      Remote work, good mission, great co-workers

      Cons

      The 50 hour workload is very unrealistic considering that the pay isn't competitive. Your manager will always try to get you to take on additional projects and spend more time on projects that do not serve your career trajectory. We have too many meetings and have a hard time collaborating in shared documents. Everyone talks in circles and wastes time on the meetings. No one is held accountable to use knowledge resources, documents, or read emails. Everyone constantly asks you to repeat everything instead of searching their emails or past chats. Chats are used at the wrong time and people have a hard time deciphering what should be sent in chat versus email. You will spend most of your time 'managing up'. Manager aren't skilled and need better training. There are too many managers. There should not be a 1 to 1 manager relationship for so many teams. Too focused on sending surveys to evaluate culture instead of taking a deeper look at turnover and the managers with 1 direct report. Those people are suffering!
