I’m considering applying for a position at FIRST in Manchester, NH. Reviews on Glassdoor are pretty mixed, so I thought I’d post here and see if I can get a few more data points. I’m ok with lower salary (it is a non profit, after all), but I would like to know what the work/life balance is like and what opportunities there are for career growth in the organization.

    Do you have experience with/passion for FIRST programs? I imagine the job would be far more enjoyable if so.

      I do, actually. I’m an alum of their program and have some experience volunteering since then.

      Amazing how being pro-facts is now considered "bashing Trump." As a republican who despises Trump and respects Dean and Woodie, I'll agree to disagree.

      How much did you usually give? I'll match it :)

      FWIW, I think trying to be "apolitical" is to nobody's benefit, and I appreciate FIRST taking a stand on issues that matter to the future of our country.

      It’s funny whenever someone says “x side is pro facts, otherside hates facts” because it’s repeated by all sides. How is this possible? Unless we all look at things from different angles and technically we all could be correct from said angles.

    Glassdoor is pretty accurate in my experience.
