    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DFID full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Initially, it makes you feel good that you are going to join DFID. That's it...and nothing else.

    Cons

    Believe me.. Very Bad Employer... they don't respect their employees at all. They believe in getting work done by someone and left them in lurch by putting a question mark over capability. Extremely convenient for them. They claim on many positive fronts, but in reality its a different ball game all together. My advice to all, whoever wish to join DFID, PLEASE wake up from your dream. Perhaps you deserve someone better than this place. Its always better late than sorry. I would never recommend this employer to anyone on this planet.
