Company Culture

The culture is one of insecurity. Staff turnover was a constant challenge.

Support from management

The constant turnover of leaders is a red flag. It's difficult to plan long term when key leader position, including the ED and HR director, lack strong, knowledgeable managers.

Career Development

If you must take a job at PTA, understand the tenure may be short. It's a small org with much of its glory in the past. Advancement and development are limited due to the size of the org.

Job Security

I hope the financial and management stability of the org has improved. The move of the national HQ from Chicago to Alexandria caused the org to spend precious money to clean up a huge mess. PTA has had a few CEO/Exec Directors since its move. The instability is reflected throughout the organization.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Where would I start?

What I like about the company

The mission of providing a voice for every child.

What I dislike about the company

PTA lives on the glory days from 1960 and 1970s when it could boast of 12 million members. PTA hasn't been a player on key issues in the child development space for many years. PTA are mainly fundraising arms for the local schools which they serve.
