Pros

Field staff are incredible, people are wonderful, smart & caring.

Cons

Rife with internal politics, lack of vision for staff and their futures, absolutely no concern for actual impact apart from questionable donor reporting indicators, a white man's club.

    Pros

    International travel opportunity
    Lower echelons: hard working, dedicated, intelligent group of people
    Promoting positive change...for the most part

    Cons

    Lacks strong, sound leadership
    Horrible inter-department communication and collaboration
    Low morale, and mgmt could care less

    Advice to Management

    Put the same time and energy into your people as they put into your organization
    A simple Thank You goes a long way...and don't wait until they leave to tell them

    Pros

    Colleagues are mostly easy going and flexible (unlike management). There are many wonderful people, with diverse experiences and skill sets, both at headquarters and on the field

    Cons

    Overworking junior level staff. Very low pay compared to other NGOs, resulting in frequent staff turnover. The management looks out only for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find ways to maintain staff retention and boost employee morale. It is no coincidence that the only people who've been there over two years are all VPs and directors.
