    I worked at St. Baldrick's Foundation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great and some of the coworkers I worked with are very passionate about the mission. Great company events that encourage bonding amongst the departments. Location was great too. It was also inspiring to meet and interact with volunteers and families, who love to share their motivations to cure childhood cancers. A good place to get your start in the nonprofit industry; you get to learn of skillsets outside your job title.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than standard but take into consideration that you will be working for a nonprofit. As far as roles, depending on your department, it's difficult to get promotions or certain perks. Unfortunately, St. Baldrick's is experiencing turnover due to changes that began in the fall of 2018. Though I got a lot of experience out of working with the company, some things need to be addressed. First, the upper management needs to learn how to value their employees, especially in the entry-level/associate positions. A suggestion is learning everyone's roles (despite the small size of the company, there have been many times a colleague/upper management was clueless to what an employee was responsible for). Second, I hope that all employees' concerns and ideas are heard. It's one thing to implement ideas from upper management's favorites, but there should be more transparent conversations about the pros and cons of potential ideas instead of shifting blame after campaigns fail to meet expectations. Third, there is a disconnect and miscommunication among the board members, management, and departments. In my time at St. Baldrick's, I ran into issues that could are easily solved, but even with the number of meetings for one campaign, an unmentioned but approved last-minute change(s) occurs without room to agree or disagree.

    I worked at St. Baldrick's Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The mission. I often heard that the goal is for the foundation to no longer be needed, for all childhood cancers to be cured. Every dollar goes to support the very best in cancer research, wherever it is found. St. Baldrick's recently funded a research team in Uganda. They are doing really incredible stuff - truly ground breaking work. Leadership is mission focused and mission lead and they do a great job at keeping our eyes on the importance of funding research and how our work must support that. The commute is relatively easy. The work culture is great. People often bring in their home grown fruits and veggies and eggs to share. Managers are very supportive and transparent - inviting and working with our ideas and suggestions. I've never worked for a business that put so much effort into listening to their constituents. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    There are no cons. Great place to work.

    Pros

    St. Baldrick's Foundation has a generous benefits package. You are allowed to have work/life balance working here. There is room for career advancement at the foundation. The leadership is always open to new ideas! The volunteers are very committed to our mission to fund childhood cancer research. There is a strong sense of communication at our organization.

    Cons

    We need more awareness about our organization in more diverse communities so that people know who we are.
