    I worked at Global Communities full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Global Communities

    Pros

    It is nice to work in a non profit industry. It feelsl like you are making a difference in a positive way.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for verticle movement and career advancement. There can be some disrespect among departments--usually indicative of organization however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that management is wisely seeking alternative funding sources which will decrease the dependency on government funding. Perhaps, attemps development program in the US to increase audience and may as a result enhance domestic funding.

    I worked at Global Communities

    Pros

    There are great people who work at CHF, very dedicated to their jobs and the organization's mission. Good atmosphere in the office and meaningful work. The headquarter offices are nice.

    Cons

    CHF doesn't offer the highest salary levels, they are lower than other similar organizations in the DC area. Their benefits package is standard. Sometimes the office is a bit slow paced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CHF has great potential to be a more successful International Development organization. The senior managemetn needs to be more strategic in its fundraising activities and build more institutional comptencies within the organization.

    I worked at Global Communities full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Strong middle management
    - Cross cutting expertise
    - Field programs often well managed
    - Some strong business development employees

    Cons

    - HQ often in disarray
    - Poor focus, attempting to transition to different types of work
    - Staff are hired for a specific task, not the long term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professional development is neglected and should be more of a focus. Retaining staff requires giving them the ability to move up and/or continue to learn.
