Everybody is super nice, but there is no trust across the organization.
Support from management
Leadership overall is a complete mess. Complete inability to make decisions.
Departments are silos that do not work well together.
If anything, there is too much communication. People spend many hours a week in unproductive meetings, and with too much information, focus is on other people's work rather than one's own work.
Overall compensation for your work
Really good for a non-profit
Suggestions for improvement
- Focus on what you do best. Stop trying to get bigger just for the sake of getting bigger, as that is simply trying to feed the founder's ego. Reduce the number of people on the leadership team. Make some difficult decisions rather than just giving lip service to difficult issues.
What I like about the company
The people are super nice.
What I dislike about the company
The organization is a mess. There is constant in-fighting regarding the organization mission, with little to no clear direction. As far as leadership, there are way too many chefs in the kitchen.
