I worked at ADRA full-time
The organization has diverse programs in many parts of the world and its field staff are committed and skilled.
Over the past several years, ADRA has had three new Presidents, none of which had any prior experience working at CEO level for an international aid organization. Each of them put the organization through intensive change with brutal layoffs without warning. The EVP has been at the organization for decades though nobody really knows what he does other than destabilize the executive team. The organization's fundraising has gone down considerably over the years and it has lost most major government grants, yet private fundraising is still expected to raise funds to pay for the salaries of program staff who have no programs to manage. There is a serious lack of leadership and direction at the executive level.
Advice to Management
To the board, pay attention to what is raised and what is costs to raise money, cost per dollar raised. Also take a look at how the unrestricted funds are spent, i.e. how much on programs, travel, equipment, drivers, benefits, etc. There are many ways to reduce costs further.
