    Pros

    EDF has very smart people who obviously care about making a positive difference. EDF also provides an excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    EDF is an extremely liberal organization staffed by people who think they are moderates. There is no diversity of thought from management who almost go out of their way to hire far left staffers. At EDF diversity only means skin color. EDF would be wise to follow Pew's model especially since so much of the money they raise comes from Republican donors. And this is why management puts on a bipartisan facade when meeting with its board and donors.

    The few conservatives on staff either hide their views or quickly learn that their input and analysis will be completely ignored and dismissed if it dares contradict some sacred liberal belief. Many of the goals at EDF are noble but management is so partisan and protective of Democratic interests that they will sacrifice their own agenda if it dares to upset other liberal NGOs or any Democratic politician in DC. For example, EDFs scientists determined fracking is safe and does not harm the water table yet their official statements were much less supportive so as not to upset the left. During cap and trade no one at EDF ever mentioned or discussed climategate because management primarily gets their news from MSNBC so they put their blinders on and pretended the scandal didn't exist. Then they were flabbergasted when climategate led to the death of their cap and trade bill. Most sadly, EDF management caved go the fascist voices on staff who refused to attend their annual retreat because it was being held at a beautiful hotel complex with a pro-American theme where Pat Robertson had a small stake in ownership.

    Lastly, no one advances up the chain unless their ideology comports with managements almost like a religious litmus test.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity means thought not how much melanin one has in their skin. Start hiring a diverse group of people if you want to stay relevant.
