Wonderful job, poor management, low salary and slow advancement
Assistant Program Officer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 6, 2016
NED has a great mission and supports groups that are inspiring. However, leadership has been at the institution for decades and is quite stagnant and removed from the plebeians, as it were. Tons of turnover at lower levels. Not much room for development and the pay scale is low, which management says is ok because of healthcare benefits, etc., but don't expect recognition for your work in monetary form. Instead, expect post-it "shout outs" in the kitchen. The institution is struggling to coordinate its many different parts and could use some reform. Some directors are also very hard to work with and there is no mechanism for getting around this.
