I have been working at Benevity full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The on boarding process ("launchpad") at Benevity is great! Loved having the opportunity to gain some insights from individual's in various roles and at various levels of the organization. Also was great to have a little crew of newbies to stomp around the office with during week one! Overall the orientation process was a great way to become familiarized with the company, facility and team members.

Cons

Not sure I am cool enough to work here!!! Being surrounded by amazing folks is not the worst problem to have though ;)

Advice to Management

Our group had some mixed messages sent out in our welcome emails, so having that standardized across the group would be super helpful! Would also be great to have parking information included in that email for those who don't know the surrounding area. Finally, we had difficulty accessing some of the applications used by the organization through Okta - the issue was sorted quite quickly but just a note for the future!

    Pros

    casual dress, a nice office that is dog-friendly, flexible hours and a social work environment.

    Cons

    there are barely any documented processes, policies or training. there is no performance measurement or clear career development. inefficient internal communications management.

    Advice to Management

    operationally, the lack of structure has left the people on the front line most vulnerable.
