    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Save the Children (More than 3 years)


    Time off benefits. The mission. The folks developing and running programs for children are best in class. Truly outstanding. The CEO is nice and very funny. Some colleagues, although this is sadly changing. "Like attracts like" and the culture is shifting due to hard-core, mean consultant type machines that really don't get it. They speak in jargon to impress themselves and each other, so good luck understanding what you are supposed to be doing.


    Good luck taking the time off. You will be hounded on weekends, vacations, and evenings. Unbelievably high turnover. Like your boss? If they are good and smart, they will walk. If not, band together and overthrow them - mature, right? Ultimately, Save the Children is an under resourced pressure cooker. There are also development and program professionals who literally do no work and barely show up as they are "working from home". Nothing happens to them. Guess who picks up the slack. You do! I can only speak to the headquarters in Fairfield, CT (the other is in DC). It's in the middle of nowhere and on the border of one of the nation's most dangerous cities. It's a tricky commute by train or car.

    Advice to Management

    Read the above. Think about work life balance and make the environment more realistic and pleasant.
