      Management and culture is holding back its full potential

      Oct 4, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in New York, NY
      Recommend

      Pros

      Individual contributors and mid management are what keeps the mission afloat.

      Cons

      Higher management, incoherent excuses, lack of integrity is what is sinking the ship. The culture is fragmented between the cool tech culture vs the legacy outdated big enterprise culture.

      Not a great atmosphere

      Pros

      Great history of doing cool work which is really exciting for someone mid career looking to learn and be inspired.

      Cons

      Did not live up to the hype or expectations. Very clicky and lots of micromanagement and people seem to run very hot and cold. Creates a dynamic that is uncomfortable at times and makes it hard to get consistent work done. Not a place you can stay for very long if you want good balance and opportunities to lead.

      Pros

      Working at DoSomething.org gives you the opportunity to work with brilliant and passionate people on an awe-inspiring mission: to transform this generation of young people into the most socially responsible and socially active generation ever. Everyone on staff believes deeply in the mission and collaborates well together to get the important work done. It's also an incredibly fun place to work as the organization has fostered a culture and an environment where you actually want to hang out with your co-workers after work and are genuinely excited to see them on Monday morning. Management also has a philosophy of believing in people from day one, no matter your experience level, and so you are given ownership of real projects right away. This provides an incredible opportunity to learn by doing, develop new skills, and have real career growth. Working at DoSomething.org will change your life forever.

      Cons

      Obviously I'm a really big fan of the place, so I don't have many cons. Instead I'll say that IMO the type of person who thrives at DoSomething.org is someone who is: - a self-starter - not afraid to ask questions - curious to learn more about the company, the members, your craft - passionate about young people and social change
