    I worked at DoSomething.org full-time for more than a year

    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

    I have been working at DoSomething.org full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible wealth of knowledge among co-workers, highly collaborative atmosphere.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no formal HR dept and no solid plan for how to improve management processes. The quality of experience and work-life balance varies highly between tech and non-tech roles. Folks in management positions often have very limited experience managing teams, and there is no plan for how to improve management issues. High turnover in enty-level positions due to limited growth paths within the organization.

    I worked at DoSomething.org for less than a year

    Pros

    Internship gave great avenues to develop skills and be hands on with small to large scale projects. Summer Fridays are a major plus. In general, work is left at the office.

    Cons

    The team dynamic can become somewhat cliquey at points.

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to grow and make a position your own! Awesome connections.

    Cons

    Hours can be long depending on what team you're on. You've got to set boundaries and talk to your manager if you feel you have too much work.
