    I worked at World Vision International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A large, diverse international organization that cares about its employees and stresses work-life balance. Very flexible in allowing tele-work. Good medical and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Work teams span multiple international timezones forcing meetings to occur late into the night on a regular basis. Management is not disciplined in terms of follow through with commitments to initiatives. The company is in a constant state of restructuring which makes it difficult to implement programs before priorities shift and budgets are reallocated. Salaries are below market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide stronger more consistent leadership.

    After the initial phone screening, I had to wait about 1 month for most of the team to be back in DC because they were all overseas. The interview went so-so; they didn't seem particularly crazy about me, but I heard from them 2 weeks later. I got the job offer but had to wait another month to start because my supervisor was overseas.
