Overall a great experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

I worked at Save the Children as a contractor

ProsSuper excited people in many different departments! It's great to work with people who are incredibly passionate, hardworking, and kind.

ConsI only have one con; while about half of the management team in the DC office is wonderful, the other half is pretty abysmal when it comes to treating the employees in their department well. Having VPs throw temper tantrums when a meeting has to be moved is outrageous.
