      Pros

      Interesting campaigns, great salaries (although sadly this has become the only motivation for some), generally good working environment, diverse range of people but could do better, thoroughly enjoyed my first 2yrs

      Cons

      Various members of staff who've been at the organisation far too long and ascended to a comfortable position but have no real passion or motivation for the job - laziness and especially bullying a major issue. No performance tracking and serious issues go unresolved

      Soul-destroying

      Jul 7, 2021 - Charity Fundraiser 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Many of the people hired are very motivated and committed to the charity's work, unfortunately this is massively undermined by management failiures.

      Cons

      Awful, vindictive management - incompetent in their roles and often nasty to staff. You're not paid for long commutes, and are expected to endure abuse from the public on a daily basis. No protection for vulnerable employees.

      Great role but needs more capacity

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great to work at a human rights org doing real positive change

      Cons

      Team needs way more capacity - team is so overstretched, everyone is close to burn out. The org also needs to recognise that the digital team are more vital than ever. The work are doing IS campaigning and mobilisation.
