    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 ;)

    I worked at Benevity full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The very nature of the company is a pro - working with brands/corporations to facilitate employee giving and volunteering. They have the world's biggest names as clients and have found a way to efficiently funnel donations to nonprofits.

    Cons

    Company had an excellent 2018 (fiscal) and hired a ton of salespeople. Then they had a lousy fiscal 2019 and couldn't support so many of them. Legacy reps held onto the best prospects and the others were left fighting for scraps. 4 major deals were lost because of lack of product innovation (something as simple as volunteering photos - how could they not develop this feature?) and it had a ripple effect. Much money was spent to obtain new leads but the effort was completely mismanaged. Morale became low, and suddenly the company everyone loved was treating employees poorly. Top performers have since moved on. Furthermore, diversity is an issue. Sales team of 30 was all white, save for 1 person. They seem to have added a second salesperson of color since then. While the company should be applauded for hiring so many women and putting so many of them into management positions, they seem to struggle with hiring non-whites for sales roles. A senior leader recently posted on social media about giving the two salespeople of color an afternoon to talk to the whole team about their experiences being black. This came across as severely patronizing - why does the white, all male sales management staff need to make the 2 lone people of color "educate" the team on racial difficulty? What a self-serving act. There's only one solution: hire more people of color! Review your HR/hiring processes that are keeping out qualified candidates who are black,. Asian, Hispanic, etc.
