Support Staff (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – January 13, 2016
The company makes a difference in the world through its mission and the people who work there are kind, caring people. However, overall it is poorly managed and through chronic under-staffing it creates an environment where employees are overworked and receive little to no benefit for their extra hours of sacrifice to fill in for people who have left. There is not really a path for advancement and bonuses seem to only be for those who are at the top. There were recent layoffs that were done in a way that many people found to be abrupt and cruel due to the timing (end of November) and lack of severance given.
Decent health benefits, free coffee, altruistic purpose, people who work here are generally kind
Too many hours, low pay, few incentives to go above and beyond, few opportunities to advance, difficult work life balance for those who have kids
