      Pew really values work life/balance and has a great compensation/benefits package. If you are a coordinator level to upper management level, you have the flexibility of working from home within reason. Management is sensitive and understanding if there are issues in your personal life that affects your work. There are holiday parties, and departmental moments of celebration for employees.


      Not a lot of opportunity for advancement in the Philadelphia office. You have to be prepared in to stay in your role for a long time because opportunity for advancement is very slim. You have more chances if you move to the DC office. Atmosphere is very diplomatic, but can translate to seem cold and rigid.

        For now, the current health benefits are great, though it has been announced that they are changing that. Based on how much they cut disability and maternity leave recently, it would seem that health insurance is also going to get slashed.


        Almost all of the reviews here are completely accurate, and I agree with what they say. The review titled "More toxic than congress" is so true, and frankly there is nothing that I could add to that. The biggest problem is that managers do not trust their staff to do their job and as a result micromanage everything, and every little document that gets churned out, even an internal document only meant for you and your teammates working on a project or campaign together is subjected to several layers of review. If a document needs to go to the CEO for review, forget about it. 10 people will need to review it and mark it up before it ever gets to the CEO, and it's likely to take 2 weeks just to get her approval. On top of all this, don't plan to have a family life. Sure, there are a few little groups within departments who are family friendly, but for the most part, they are NOT. Do not expect to get time off to be home with your sick child or to attend an event at their school. There are no flex hours for parents. If you are one of the lucky few who is not expected to put in overtime on a daily basis, you come in at 9, you leave at 5:30, and that is that. No questions asked. Pew hires all kinds of experts supposedly for their counsel and their suggestions, but that is not what happens. You do what you are told, and you think what you are told to think. On top of all this, there is NO room for advancement. Pew will hire someone from the outside before ever considering one of their employees for a job.
