Looks good from outside, not so much on the inside
Donor Engagement (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAMarch 29, 2017
Leadership is narcissistic and resistant to change

Personnel turnover at the senior, mid and junior levels dangerously high and above peer entities in the area

Donors complain about the lack of information and services for fees paid

Nonprofits are supported in a fragmented, irrational manner

Workdays are long and easily can be 7 days a week
Pros
Silicon Valley network and presence
Cons
Micromanagement

Fun Place with Great Ethics and Low Pays
Grants Associate (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CAFebruary 3, 2016
It's a nice place with great people who work hard and don't easily say no if you need any help understanding things. The organizations provides good training and has pretty good standard procedure for the work they handle.

Only if they paid there employees well, most of the people would stick around. It's an organization with great values and mission.

Review for SVCF
Computer Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Silicon Valley, CAMarch 26, 2013
At SVCF, everyone is very nice and courteous.
There's no 3 month probation period, you get the full benefit package starting from day 1.
401k is 100% vested.
Even though salary is not as competitive. However, it has some of the best employee benefit compared to other companies.
Pros
free soda and snacks
Cons
locate in mountain view, commute could be problematic for non locals
