    Great Company and Great Benefits

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Catholic Relief Services for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Potential internal advancement but totally based on your supervisor's discretion. Competitive salaries for an NGO. Familly oriented and opportunities for training.

    Cons

    Tend to hire third country nationals for expat positions especially in the field of Finance and Operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to hire younger professionals who have a background in the field work and don't hesitate to send them on the field. The field of Finances and Operations are highly risky and you need people with a high level of integrity for these postions.,
