Featured Review

Current Employee - Communications Director

I have been working at American Express full-time

Pros

More than I have time to list

Cons

Working for a large international business isn't for everyone.

Former Employee - Non-fundraising Role

I worked at WaterAid full-time

Pros

Great working environment and culture. Everyone supports each other and is there for a shared goal. Lots of development and learning opportunities, as well as opportunities to collaborate and mix... with colleagues socially.

Cons

Some leadership decisions not transparent until they've already been made.

Advice to Management

Create more levels of roles to allow for better career progression, and decentralise some of your roles from the HQ.
