    Experiencing exodus for a reason

    Pros

    Occasional puppies and well-meaning people. If you work the fundraising department, you will get the experience you need for career growth at another org. It's also silo-ed from the problematic departments (works as it's own little organization).

    Cons

    Doesn't make nearly the impact on animals they could or should with their budget. Toxic leadership that doesn't value employees, and is the biggest reason for a mass exodus of their best people the past year. Lacks focus, follow-through and innovation.
