5 Reasons to Work with The Management Center

1. By helping our clients, you’ll have an impact on the most important issues facing our country, like health care, racial justice, immigration, and climate change.

2. Our clients are amazing people. You’ll work with leaders who go straight from talking with you to testifying on the Hill, leading a rally at the state capitol, or planning a new grassroots campaign with teams of organizers, and you’ll see the results of their work on the front pages of newspapers.

3. Our team is awesome. You’ll be working with a diverse group of smart, thoughtful, and genuinely nice people. (At least we think we are!)

4. We treat our people well, from benefits to flexible work arrangements to affinity group structures to an office treadmill to unusually good snacks.

5. We try to practice what we preach: great management. You’ll have clear expectations, receive feedback (some of it even useful), get opportunities to grow and develop, and do it all in a culture that keeps the focus on real-world results.
