Suggestions for improvement

  • A better understanding of each person's roles is needed. There have been times when support is not given from someone who is truly not authorized to make the final decisions. Also, more comfortable working environment is needed. There have been times when offices have to be relocated more than once in a year due to departments merging and/or construction.

What I like about the company

This company is great for someone who is looking to work strongly with the public. You also receive amazing health benefits, as well as financial benefits via a 401K Matching Program. It stars to feel like family with many co-workers hanging supporting each other's program initiatives and bringing their children to free family events.

What I dislike about the company

The company sometimes does not offer administrative support for programming due to budget constraints and non profit restrictions. Parking is not convenient as well, but public transportation is easily accessible.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would have regular team meetings and communications from each executive staff member. I would also do a salary analysis to make sure that people are being paid a competitive wage to lower the turnover rate.

What I like about the company

As an employee of the Foundation we get access to a lot of great programs and activities offered through the Library. For example, I have been able to volunteer and watch many of our great Author Lectures and meet people including Kevin Hart, Bruce Springsteen, and Buzz Aldrin. We also get matching on our 401k plan which is great.

What I dislike about the company

In the development office of the Foundation we often focus too much on the revenue we are generating without a real eye or focus on our costs. It would be great if we could run more like a business with a holistic look at expenses as well as revenue. In addition, I think there is room for more communication among the different teams within the organization. We are often in silos working independently without enough collaboration and sharing.

This place is a horrible place to work. They pay black people really low and act like things are not happening when they know you are being trwated unfair.

What I dislike about the company

I didn't like upper management. Really the CFO
