If you're looking to work for a professionally-run nonprofit, keep looking.
Director in Communications and PR (Former Employee) – location-free – December 10, 2014
This is NOT a good place to work. The culture is oppressive, from their policies to their manner of interacting with employees.
The idea that "we're all adults" doesn't apply here. They treat their staff like children -- they expect the worst instead of the best, they're patronizing, and they do everything in their power to control all aspects of employee life (including most recently, telling staff that they cannot text coworkers anything personal at any time, work hours or not -- don't ask about hobbies, don't ask how your weekend was, nothing. They run the organization in a very secretive and fear-based manner.
Too many people there are only out for their own self interests. They will do anything to maintain or gain control over others or over work, including getting rid of hardworking enthusiastic people.
They claim to embrace change, challenge convention, value everyone, etc and they launched a new brand and values this year, but it's all lip service. The people who are living out the new brand values get penalized and/or fired.
Meaningful mission - feeding hungry children, their community development programs create lasting change, some staff are top notch
They don't let OKC employees work flexible schedules even though out-of-state staff work from home, Work-life balance is non-existent, Stingy with comp time and other benefits, They don't provide career development
