I worked at Global Communities full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Field staff are incredible, people are wonderful, smart & caring.

Cons

Rife with internal politics, lack of vision for staff and their futures, absolutely no concern for actual impact apart from questionable donor reporting indicators, a white man's club.

    Pros

    International travel opportunity Lower echelons: hard working, dedicated, intelligent group of people Promoting positive change...for the most part

    Cons

    Lacks strong, sound leadership Horrible inter-department communication and collaboration Low morale, and mgmt could care less

    Advice to Management

    Put the same time and energy into your people as they put into your organization A simple Thank You goes a long way...and don't wait until they leave to tell them

    I worked at Global Communities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You're a part of good work that benefits people around the globe. Non-profit, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    CHF is over-reliant on CHF grants. When a project ends, so can one's employment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about and plan to increase private funding, make it happen. Also, don't keep your staff in the dark.
