    I worked at Wounded Warrior Project full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, lifelong bond within. Great benefits, working for a cause you believe in.

    Cons

    Bad leadership. Almost every person with a "Director" or "VP" role is out for themselves. No rhyme or reason for who stays or who goes.

    Advice to Management

    Public image of the organization is at an all-time low and instead of ridding the organization of top leadership, you rid the organization of hard working, caring employees who you never listened to in the first place. You can't steer your fleet of ships in a new direction if the captains are the same - despite what the public thinks, we all know you kept the same shady people who caused your mess in the first place.

    Benefits, salary, culture that focuses on growth, encouragement and fun; typically rewarding work, "freedom within the framework" (loose rules), supportive management that truly cares about its people.

    Travel, understaffed, enabling warriors (versus empowering).

    I have been working at Wounded Warrior Project full-time

    Pros

    Company paid benefits and generous PTO policy

    Cons

    Lack of culture, upper management not in touch with the reality of the company, poor current leadership

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the management styles of former leadership. Employees were a lot happier and couldn't wait to come to work every day.
