Trust glassdoor reviews. Those are just the ones pissed off enough to make a post. How many others are suffering quietly because they are too agreeable to do something about it?

Glassdoor reviews. Does Anyone have experience with a similar situation?

The one reason I wouldn’t really trust them is because the bad reviews come from field offices where people do the on the ground volunteering and I would be in the HQ doing more corporate stuff. Also the organization has a 3.1 out 5 so it’s not terrible

You do not know. I’ve known some no.ln profits where the paid staff looked down on the volunteers but this occurred close to the front lines, higher ups were unawares. Culture varies by office and even by team, how many IT teams dress formally, how many execs dress casually or sales staff. It all depends look for reviews of the team you are joining.

Yeah the team I’m interviewing for has closer to 4 stars. I know it’s a very lean organization and som people say it has Poor work life balance but from what I’ve heard between 45-50 hours per week and starting pto of 15 days which is lower than what I have now
