Reviews

Company Culture

Teammates were great, but leadership lacked.

Teamwork

Teammates encouraged collaboration, but leaders did not

Freedom to work independently

Allows employees the flexibility to leave when their work is done, or work from remote places.

Internal Communication

Lacks in transparency especially when it comes to higher up business decisions

Gender Equality

Some pay disparity but okay with treatment of women and minorities

Attitude towards older colleagues

Younger generation. Older individuals not hired.

Work-Life Balance

You're expected to work hard, but can have flexible schedules

Challenging Work

Nonprofit work is hard and demanding. You're spread thin and expected to do as much as possible with little pay.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not a diverse office. Doesn't represent the people it serves.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More training opportunities for leadership and individuals. Increase peoples pay. Allow room fro growth.

What I like about the company

Flexible work schedules, great teammates.

What I dislike about the company

Work on leadership. Seems like the top protects the to no matter what. Invest in leadership training and not millions into a product that doesn't work how you want, or international flights.
