    I worked at World Health Organization


    Great benefits, opportunities to travel and the opportunity to do some great work for under served populations.


    Limited growth and cumbersome processes. Very large bureaucratic culture with little communication between and within groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase communication between and within groups at WHO without adding additional assigned tasks of creating bulletins to convey information - meetings in the hallways and monthly technical meetings would go much further to increasing communications. Also, trust your employees.
