Enjoyed the work itself but morale sucked
Senior Manager, Advisory Services, DER Progs (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 25, 2017
I enjoyed my time at CSE, because they were flexible and loyal, however, the second my contract ran out of money my position was eliminated. Not fun.
Pros
Sick days + Paid Time Off, Alternative work schedule, Mission Based non-profit
Cons
Executive team treats you like a number, rather than a person. Working in a satellite office makes you feel unwanted.

Challenging work with bad leadership
Former Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 12, 2017
This the worst organization I've ever worked for. It acts like a non-profit for tax purposes only. The leadership is horrid and has ruined the place.
Pros
Nice people, casual dress
Cons
Horrible leadership, no job security

Nice People, Short Contracts
Manager (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 19, 2016
Work is great while contracts last. After they expire it can be hard to keep a full time position.

Employees are assigned to contracts rather than roles, so you will see accountants processing rebates, managers doing outreach events, etc.. Must be open to taking on tasks far outside of your position.
Pros
Culture, people
Cons
Inconsistent workloads, very political environment

Great place to work
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 8, 2015
Most jobs are for programs so may only last for the length of the program, (dependent on funding and who provides it). Opportunity to move between programs, and for promotion.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Non profit so pay will generally be a little lower

CCSE overview
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 20, 2013
Working at CCSE was a great experience and the co-workers were one of the best co-workers one could want to work with. The easiest and enjoyable part of my job was recruiting and employee relations. Enjoyed working with the volunteers and interns.
