        I worked at Relief International full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Recent college graduates can actually get hired with an International Development organization and don't need their masters.

        Cons

        The salaries are very low, turnover is very high, the behavior of management resembles that of the investment banking world moreso than a non profit, in that employees have been reduced to tears.

        Advice to Management

        Management needs professional development and help in fostering a positive working environment

        I have been working at Relief International

        Pros

        Wonderful people and wide range of experience acquired quickly due to high workload and responsibility level. Excellent for the person looking to dive head-first into the nonprofit field.

        Cons

        Responsibilities outside of your role: You often end up doing the work of two or three people, so this can be a fast-paced, stressful environment.

        Advice to Management

        Knowledgeable management team that recognizes talent and wants to see Relief International's team take ownership of and grow with the organization.

        I worked at Relief International

        Pros

        Some of the nicest people to work with in a somewhat small organization. Inter-departmental relationships are great and easy to work with. Good place to step into the non-profit arena.

        Cons

        Hours can be long if your work load tends to grow exponentially. Although, there are certain months of the year where things tend to pile up and time when things are "normal."

        Advice to Management

        Leadership is RI is satisfying. If you show you are capable of handling more than what is required, you will find yourself taking a stab at things you may find more interesting.
