Great place to work.
TNC is a great place to work. It offers many opportunities for growth and values work-life balance. It requires the ability to work independently and in most cases, perform the job with very little training. It is a fast-paced organization and management often don't have time to train or mentor staff.

Do not apply
Very racist and non equal opportunity employment. Treated very unfair. Horrible company.they did not give me raise. Your peers decide whether or not you get a yearly raise. It is not based on your performance.

Not a good place to work if your are not White
The company is very racist. They talk a good game, but they don’t practice it. They won’t fire you just illuminate your job. Most all managers are white.

Good mission, inconsistent management
I was excited to work at TNC and felt I had a lot to contribute. After a year the marketing department was cleaned out nationwide. Since leaving it seems like an overhaul happens frequently. Many have been through it.

Good Cause | Bad Culture
On the plus side, TNC has a noble mission and (for the most part) the employees have bought into that mission. Conversely, you must fit in to be successful. Decisions are dominated by "group think" and management often lacks direction.
Pros
Work/Life Balance
Cons
Bad Culture, Low on Diversity, Poor Management, Low Compensation

Productive and fun work place with a lot of togetherness
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things and meeting new people from all across the globe. I'm just sad that the contract ended, but I walked away with a better understanding of going green.

Fun environment
Great place, get the feel of a cubicle. Advance the ladder quickly. A little bit of luck with a little bit of skills put me in the Coordinator position. Allowed me to feel what managers feel in the office environment... and it is not easy as it seems.
Pros
Quickly advance the corporate ladder
Cons
it was contract

Challenging workplace
Difficult to advance career wise, if you start at an admin level it is very difficult to break that career pathway. Way too many restructures which make job security unstable.

Conservation Giant
The Nature Conservancy is a wonderful place to work. It has the most competitive benefits for a non-profit.

The work atmosphere is relaxed (no dress code).


The building on 4245 North Fairfax Drive just went under a 25 million dollar interior renovation. It is in an open cube environment. State of the art conference rooms. Free ground fresh coffee. Excellent location across from Ballston metro. Great places to eat lunch/dinner.


Parking in the building.
Pros
Free coffee, no dress code, liberal work environment, excellent health benefits, 401k match to 8%
Cons
too many meetings

not much room for career advancement
