Growth and advancement can be limited to project and funding but a great learning environment. There is a lot of opportunity to work independently and not be micromanaged or restricted.

This is a part time job while i was a student. the job is not directly associated with the organization, but depends on which professor is your boss.

My only problem with the company was that I never received a raise in the over 6 years of my employment. Though my duties were completed in a timely manner and fellow employees who had been there longer received a raise I didn't complain. The benefits were excellent and working with my fellow co-workers was awesome. Therefore, I stayed there in the hopes of when the company stopped downsizing I would receive a raise, but was let go before that could happen. I learned alot about teamwork, excel, organization and efficiency. My most enjoyable memories are with my co-workers and the person (supervisor) over me.

There are absolutely no African American or people of color in leadership positions. There is a culture of micromanagement that starts at the top. If you absolutely need a job.....
Pros
It’s a job
Cons
Stuck in 1980

I found SDSURF a competitive and judgmental environment. I take constructive criticism well, but the managers I had at SDSURF never offered anything but! It would be nice to hear "Good Job" every now and then.

Great place to work for. The benefits are great and you have the opportunity to meet new people and network. The bad part is sometimes there are budget cuts and most programs run on soft money. Managment is relaxed depending on the program you are working for. The hardest part of the job is that most employees are over 50 and the company can really use young blood.
Pros
benefits
Cons
lack of career advancement

Very strict. Management sometimes did not know what was going on. Lots of busy work, I shredded papers for 3 hours at a time more than once. The management lacks clear instruction.

A typical day starts on time with a continuous flow of work that will challenge anyone to do their best and accomplish all tasks in a timely manner. I learned to work with a variety of low, mid and upper management to help them accomplish their goals for the fiscal year. The hardest part of the job was to provide the service necessary for each team when processes, lack of documentation and integrity of messaging was inconsistent and often changed in the moment to benefit the manager and to the discredit of the administrative support staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was to work with very talented staff and the sense of community exhibited in meetings.
Pros
Great place to learn, talented staff, wonderful benefits, old school ways of work
Cons
Poor Administrative, processes, documentation storage, managers look for faults and errors, ignores what works, not open to change.

Most enjoyable part is their are no fix job hours that you have to come at 9 and work for 8 hours. The only thing that has importance is work and not how it is done.
