    I have been working at Mercy Corps full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful, dedicated, smart colleagues
    New HQ space is impressive and lovely to be in.
    Mission of helping the most vulnerable is inspiring and feels good.
    Fun parties, interesting learning events, fun crossfunctional MC soccer team

    Cons

    Colleagues there because they believe in it and love to travel but don't necessarily have professional training in project management, using and evaluating evidence, business processes, monitoring and evaluation, research to name a few I run into in my work.

    HR management particularly incompetent. Recruiters understaffed and overworked so don't always follow up.

    Senior managers not good at delivering bad news or managing their direct reports. People management is problematic and people managers are not held accountable.

    Often who gets hired and who gets let go is very political and driven by the CEO and top manager's favorites. Cronyism. If you are a CEO favorite they'll always find a role for you if yours ends or there is a re-org.

    MC says they are all about using participatory methods out in the field but they don't use this at HQ with their own staff. Lack of consultation with their own experts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top leaders need to move on and allow new blood, new ideas.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
