    I have been working at Conservation International full-time


    - Dynamic organization that provides opportunities for staff at any level to have a meaningful contribution to the mission and strategy - International focus, diversity of programs, diverse staff means lots of opportunities to interact and learn about other countries and cultures - Benefits are competitive with for-profits, generally positive atmosphere and good workplace conditions, salaries are competitive with other non-profits - Many managers (not all) respect work-life balance and provide opportunities for professional development


    - Founder-led organization, very top-down management - Frequent changes to strategy and restructuring results in lack of continuity of programs, funding, feeling of job insecurity by many staff - Legacy of promotion of staff who are strong in one area (e.g. science or fundraising) but are not necessarily strong managers, in some cases this has resulted in weak or outright bad management

    Advice to Management

    - If changes in strategy or restructuring is necessary, communicate the reasons for the change clearly and beforehand - Changes should be, when possible, made with input from staff at all levels of the organization. If feedback is incorporated into senior leadership decisions, or not, this should also be communicated (communication should not just flow in one direction.) - Organizational changes should, when possible, be made incrementally and outcomes of the changes (positive or negative) should be tracked and reported. Rather than making massive changes all at once, it is better to make incremental tweaks and see what works or doesn't. Major overhauls of programs or strategies should only be made in extreme cases.
