    Business Outlook


    Meaningful work and more resources to do the work than many nonprofits; many passionate staff


    Leadership acknowledged there is a "culture of fear" within the organization but did little to address it; staff have been demoted or laid off with little transparency; current environment program leadership has devalued projects, staff, and partners within the U.S.; DEI efforts are mostly lip service

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pew Charitable Trusts (United States) in Feb 2023


      First HR screening with PEW overall office then, if a "good fit," move on to further rounds with particular staff related to job description. There was discussion of multiple rounds of interviews after the initial second-round interview with the team, which seems a bit much, but PEW seems very bureaucratic in everything is does - so this may be policy rather than choice.

    Employee Story
    Innovation and nonpartisanship are two of Pew’s seven core values. For Deanna Richards, a manager with our Antibiotic Resistance Project who recently celebrated her first work-iversary, they also stand out as enablers of her team’s success. “We’re really able to step outside of the political realm and address real-world challenges with fact-based solutions.” She also speaks sweetly of an office baking competition—and doesn’t seem too salty she didn’t win. Policy wins matter more. She has those. 🧁🎉
    "I love that Pew focuses on nonpartisan work"

    Employee Story
    “Pew embraces who I am. I’m accepted, I’m encouraged, and it’s a really supportive environment that I appreciate.” Inclusiveness is at the core of Pew’s work and internal culture. For Shannon, a senior communications and operations associate, the ability to be her sincere self at work is one of the best parts of Pew.
