    Pros

    The mission and team members are a huge plus. The organization does great work around the world and the individuals working there are talented.

    Cons

    As a mid-level employee, clear professional development and growth opportunities are key. The leadership refuses to see how strong their younger talent is and cultivate them. Individuals who work there believe in their mission but can't see a future at the organization because no effort is placed on employee engagement or growth. When staff turnover occurs, positions are only back filled if its a senior level staffer causing employees to be overworked. It also causes high stress environment. If you are looking for a salary increase or promotion, expect the paperwork and approval to take months - it will be a battle.

    Advice to Management

    invest in the future of your employees.

  2. Wonderful mission and mostly nice people, but office environment is tense.

    Pros

    Organization is mission driven and makes you feel your job really matters in helping the poor. Many of the people are really great.

    Cons

    Office environment is tense. Obvious favoritism. Need to hire upper management that has fresh ideas...maybe even a few managers with more contemporary ideas. Very little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire upper management that is more contemporary in management style.
