Director (Former Employee) says

"Very young organization still very much in the founder phase. Lots of governance and culture issues and very high turnover of staff. HR is very limited and often problematic."

Former Employee - Manager says

"I worked at The Movember Foundation full-time Cons: They are the absolute worst"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at The Movember Foundation full-time for more than a year Cons: This is a registered health promotion charity that generates significant money, and there is a single man in charge who used to run a phone company. It is dangerous, and deliberately misleading to a general public. Drug and alcohol fuelled parties, constant macho behaviour, and they actually do call you 'bro'."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at The Movember Foundation full-time for more than a year Cons: Archaic leadership. Driftwood staff. Lack of trust in new innovative thinkers brought on board. Red tape everywhere. Micromanagement. Inability to make decisions and stick to them. Subjective opinions that override expertise. Fake culture that acts as if everything is OK without addressing serious concerns (such as overwork and lack of resources) raised by staff. Mental health problems everywhere, despite the organisation raising funds for mental health. Long hours for international calls. Rapid expansion with nothing in place to protect staff from churn and burn."

"I worked at The Movember Foundation full-time for more than a year Cons: too many to list. alcoholics, drug fuelled parties for a company that claims they are supporting mens health."

"I worked at The Movember Foundation for less than a year Cons: Run like a terror cell. Worst environment I have ever ever worked in. Stay away. Nightmare"

Former Employee - Product Designer says

"I worked at The Movember Foundation full-time for less than a year Cons: - No structure or planning behind decisions - Constant project direction changes - Lack of general decision making - Lack of decent communication - No role definition - Crazy international phone calls all the time at silly hours in the day/night - No career pathway/planning or KPIs - Too many office distractions to get work done - Very high turn over (all the great people leave)"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at The Movember Foundation full-time for less than a year Cons: Often success is determined by popularity and capacity to be embraced by internal clique's. Verbally the organisation wants to embrace different skills and experience but still has to mature in this as monoculture/'like me' mindset prevails. I left because of false promises, lack of leadership support and deteriorating mental health brought on by the role and leadership."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at The Movember Foundation full-time for more than a year Cons: - Stressful environment that has caused more mental illnesses and anxiety in any organisation that I have worked for - Culture is contrived, and lacks diversity - Lack of career development - Lack of appreciation and respect - Expectation to work long hours when working with the other offices in Europe and America - Lack of management/leadership - Lack of productivity"

says

"I worked at The Movember Foundation Cons: HR, senior leadership, decision making, strategy is all a mess. Some serious work and personnel changes needed on many levels. Change is currently happening, but the wrong people still staying within the organization. Unsure how long it will take for them to get there, it's unfortunate."
