A good place to earn some money while looking for something better.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Everytown for Gun Safety could be a great place to work. They know how to fight for gun violence protection reform, and they are incredibly well-funded. Unfortunately, Everytown's potential is frustrated by poor organization, poor communication between management and staff, and a culture of alcoholism. The good news: they can pay you whatever they want. Be sure to demand enough money to allow you to work under these conditions--especially if you have a family and will have to commute in. As noted above, it may be a good place for a person in their 20s to earn money while looking for a different job.

The worst management I've ever seen

There is no transparency in terms of promotion, salary level, or organizational structure. There is no org chart, and people get promoted multiple times between annual reviews, making you wonder how they got their promotion. The job descriptions are not available to anyone other than directors, making you wonder what everyone is doing for work. The supervisors dismiss subordinates as a rule, but they can do that since there is absolutely nobody who would want to know the opinions of subordinates, structurally speaking. The org is top-heavy, with those under them with skills leaving often. On my team, for example, 4 people left within the 7 months I worked there, a turnover rate I've never seen anywhere else. Frustrations abound, and people get emotional at work, making it even more stressful, inundated with unhappy people.

Deeply flawed management structure

Working at this organization was by far my worst professional experience. Major departments of this organization were virtually non-functional. Human resources department taking weeks to resolve basic issues and showing an obvious lack of enthusiasm/commitment to ensuring employees have what they need to succeed or even have what they need to meet the requirements of the job. Managers, even at state-level obviously lacked leadership experience and were inadequately prepared or altogether uninterested in fostering a culture of mutual respect. Management lacked expertise in staff development. Taking a position with this company is a risk to your professional development because the overall culture doesn't value its employees & experiences high levels of turnover that actually endangers the ability of staff to execute the mission of the organization.

Pros

Good benefits, relatively high pay

Cons

stressful working conditions with long hours, lack of commitment to building a culture of mutual respect, extensive difficulties with inter-departmental communications, lack of commitment to developing employees, very high rates of turnover makes it difficult to develop productive working relationships
