    I worked at The People's Music School full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The overall environment was a positive one. A small staff allows you to have a stronger and closer rapport.

    Cons

    The lacksidasical nature of the environment was socially comfortable but for professional progression, policies, HR and overall administrative where with-all, it was a negative. Because those in positions of power were more your friend than your boss the lines and limits of accountability weren't clear and caused difficulty in decision making and cross departmental functioning.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basics. In an attempt to stay relevant in the market and competitive with organizations in the industry, being wrapped up in what bigger companies could do has made you come up short on paying attention to the people that produce your service and those being served. Non-profit is just a tax assignment, operate like the mega company you are and will succeed.


  2. "Organization with a great mission"
