    Working with incredibly competent and passionate coworkers, very flexible workplace in lots of ways - work from home, follow interests and shift internally to work on different types of work, expectation of supportive managers, there's a lot of pros.

    Cons

    Sometimes out of touch leadership, often heavy workload, sometimes patronizing approach to consulting, sometimes inconsistent management

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people more. Don't release info to staff the same way you would release to funders.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TNTP in April 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long, over four months, and communication between interviews was limited. After each step it would take weeks before I was notified of the outcome. It was never made clear to me up front what was involved in the interview process, despite my many questions attempting to understanding the steps.

    I also found the staff who interviewed me to be rude and inconsiderate. Phone conversations were rushed and it was made clear to me that I was "squeezed" into very busy schedules. One interviewer was two hours late for the interview, and never called or emailed to let me know she was running late. I thought I had been stood up. When the interviewer showed up I was told our conversation would be shorter than planned, due to the interviewers busy schedule. It would have been better to reschedule. I wonder if this was intentional, to test my flexibility.

    While the job was appealing, I chose not to work with people who are rude and inconsiderate.
