Human Resource Director (Former Employee), Edgefield, SC – August 7, 2015
Pros: People & environment.
Cons: Board of Directors
This is the best job & organization for whom I have worked. The culture and people were fantastic. Unfortunately, due to turmoil between the Board and executive staff, a new CEO was brought onboard who decided to make several changes to his staff. I was subsequently laid off.
Great non-profit conservation organization led by inexperienced CEO in recent years.
Senior Regional Director (Former Employee), Montana and Wyoming – May 24, 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed the job I performed for the NWTF. However, major changes began to occur when a new CEO was appointed by a National Board about 6 years ago and the organization has struggled under this new leadership. Many jobs have been eliminated under this new management leadership in order to meet profit expectations set by the board.
Communications Intern (Former Employee), Edgefield SC – December 4, 2013
I interned at the National Wild Turkey Federation so it was not a paying job. I interned in the communications department so I worked with their magazine and their social media department. I learned a lot about social media and what goes in to producing a magazine. The employees there were wonderful and helpful. I got to experience so many different extracurricular activities while there.
Great team atmosphere, fun and rewarding work, but at the time of my employment was a challenging time for fundraising and membership recruitment - key components to the overall success of the organization.
