Act on your passions -- But don't burn out

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
AFSC lets you put your values into action. Benefits and good, but salaries are often much lower than in comparable NGOs. The complex management system and ostensible consensus decision making can be hard to navigate.

Pros

Acting on your values, benefits

Cons

Burnout, fractious internal culture

But both are excellent people. very understanding, loving and caring people who wants people exceed in whatever they do. They are very supportive and always looking for ways to help me improve and develop both in my professional life and as a person. Both are filled with great moral values! Lovely organization to work for and great supervisors.

Horrendous management

The corporate management in Philadelphia was wildly out of touch with the regional and local offices. They have consistently driven it towards insolvency in the last 10-15 years.

Pros

Good salary and benefits

Cons

Terrible culture

Can't generalize, but my experience was amazing

The AFSC is a huge organization with offices in many states. I had a atypical experience while trying to help a group of wonder Quakers implement an office in Connecticut. I only worked with them for a summer. I had an amazing experience. If you have the opportunity to work with AFSC I strongly suggest doing so.
