Company Culture

Just appalling. The board has their favorites and will overlook appalling HR violations to protect whomever they prefer.

Support from management

As a nonprofit, you can probably guess the pitfalls. Minimal management support, with more of a focus on pushing pet projects than on running the place well.

Teamwork

Other than the supervising board there's a great sense of camaraderie. Unfortunately, that can only take you so far.

Freedom to work independently

Literally any project can and will be taken over at the drop of a hat by an inexperienced yet opinionated volunteer with too much time on their hands.

Gender Equality

A friend of mine, who had been a loyal employee for years, was actively discouraged from taking maternity leave because they didn't want to spend money on a temp.

Career Development

Absolutely zero interest in training people.

Overall compensation for your work

Minimal at best. I've never had a job other than part-time college jobs that offered so little.

Environmental Friendliness

The whole board is aggressively unaware of social issues on a practical scale. In terms of their willingness to adopt basic things like recycling, they are so backwards as to be virtually archaic.

Work-Life Balance

I guess I technically had a life outside work. However, the pay was so abysmal my average weekend consisted of staying home and reviewing my bank account to see if I could afford Taco Bell for a special treat.

Job Security

Let me just say this... I got let go despite being told that there were no problems with my job performance. Within a year, at least three other people were hired and fired at increasingly lower offers to fill my exact same position. Does that sound like job security to you?

Challenging Work

Challenging in the sense of spending the majority of your day dealing with jerks, I suppose.

Inclusive / Diverse

No. Not in the least. One time I tried to ask for a religious holiday that they didn't traditionally take. I was able and willing to take PTO to cover it. And yet, a board member still suggested firing me for asking for the holiday AND tried to pass a motion banning people from taking that holiday in the future.

What I like about the company

Almost nothing.

What I dislike about the company

They were inconsistent, unsupportive, and sometimes irrationally hostile. Hands down one of the worst organizations I've ever worked with.
