    I worked at ACDI/VOCA


    There are still a lot of wonderful, hard-working, and experienced professionals working at ACDI/VOCA. It has a wealth of experience and used to have a good working culture. It has great benefits, a respect for work-life balance and a convenient and recently-renovated office space.


    It is losing its experienced staff rapidly for a number of reasons but most have to do with its management approach and a negative work environment. Few people are putting in the extra effort because an individual's work is no longer recognized nor will it help them achieve their professional goals. People lack confidence in their managers and are frustrated with the way in which the restructuring has affected their job. This is happening at all levels and it trickles down. Unfortunately, if ACDI/VOCA does not win more bids, there will be even fewer opportunities and dissatisfaction will intensify. The CEO and top leadership is completely disconnected with the organization, oblivious to these concerns, and has taken a very inflexible approach that is not responsive and does not allow people to work at their highest capacity or incentive them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that you are at a critical juncture and need a significant momentum shift. Replace a number of senior management positions, reduce the number of senior positions overall, and allow greater flexibility into the system, rewarding people based on their achievements. Incentivize staff at all levels to participate in new business and foster greater team collaboration by not focusing so heavily on vertical relationships between staff. Stop telling staff what they cannot do and, instead, listen to suggestions and reward them by providing these opportunities. Do exit interviews and take the feedback seriously.
