    I worked at International Relief and Development full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    IRD has a fabulous mission with dedicated professionals who truly want to help the world's most vulnerable populations.

    Cons

    Organization is transitioning now from a founder-led company to a new President & CEO. There are some growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time on proposal development and more time on implementation. There should be a balance of the two.

    Associate Program Officer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at International Relief and Development in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to apply by a current employ that I new from previous work. After my initial application IRD waited six weeks to contact me. The sector Director that I work under interviewed me along with a future colleague. They both had read my resume, but they were clear what they were looking for. I would recommend coming into an interview ready to answer random technical questions but also ready to guide your interviewer.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate, though IRD really needed me to join and join quickly. IRD's HR department does not understand compensation, and they are deliberately stingy. They will low ball you. Through very little negotiation I was able to receive about 23% higher than what was offered.
