      Effective and organized nonprofit; thoughtful and mostly hardworking colleagues; Good work/life balance; Overall: good as a mid-career step but not somewhere you want to stay too long -- though experiences do vary from project to project


      Very hierarchical and not a good fit for someone looking to own more of their work; Leadership micromanages and could be more transparent; Departments are territorial which can lead to conflict at many levels (esp. with management);

        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.
