Got an offer for a Strategy Analyst position at a non-profit. I'm really excited about the role/company but they have bad glassdoor reviews (though most are from non relevant positions). Should I risk it for the "dream role"?

I have 2 YOE and I'm not enjoying consulting at my current company (hate traveling, don't like the work, bad managers, no wlb)

100% take it. Glassdoor doesn’t mean squat. And esp if you hate current role what is worst that can happen? You go to another non profit or back to consulting. Don’t let fear get in the way of you accomplishing your goals/dreams

Love the reply, thanks for the help!

Pay attention to the reviews for patterns but don't use that as your only source. Talk to people at the firm, try to get under the surface. Ultimately your direct boss matters more than anything so make sure like him / her.

Consulting is not going anywhere. Leave on good terms so you can come back if you really need to
