    I worked at Relief International full-time

    Pros

    The most dedicated humanitarian staff I have met in the field, trying to count every penny to help those that have been affected by whatever tragedy they may have faced. Some paying out of their own pocket to make things easier.

    Cons

    Limited funding Field staff benefits are atrocious, especially in conflict areas. (R&R, relocation, etc are a joke) accounting system is a mess and they do not have any idea how to recover cost, which impacts the organization. In some instances, recruiting seems non-competitive, favoring old boys network Field staff are not appreciated and not understood.

    Advice to Management

    GSO staff needs to travel to the field to understand the challenges and success that the field office faces. Does not take care of staff especially in conflict zones.

    Pros

    RI is a great place to break into the humanitarian sector, you learn a ton and it prepares you well for your future career. They hire a lot from within especially with interns. The staff are kind, hard-working, and dedicated. With the new CEO, there is tons of potential and a bright future for the years ahead.

    Cons

    Staff need more opportunities to travel to the field to see the programs first hand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great momentum going!
