    Internship

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Center for International Private Enterprise for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a real internship with involvement in real program overseas and you are part of the team meeting and share ideas with other members.

    Cons

    Except for the long distance between my place and the working place everything was great.

  2.  

    Low morale, mostly caused by very poor management.

    I worked at Center for International Private Enterprise full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Intelligent coworkers at the program officer and program assistant levels who are experts in their fields
    - Good health benefits
    - Will sponsor your education

    Cons

    - Management treats staff poorly
    - Mid-level and lower-level staff, while very intelligent, are miserable
    - Org is unknown, so the name won't help you when you leave
    - High attrition remains unacknowledged by management and HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Low morale always stems from the principal.

    CIPE is just another NGO, don't expect great management or high accountability culture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    I worked at Center for International Private Enterprise

    Pros

    Intellectual curiosity is welcome and a must
    On-going learning
    Benefits are slightly better than in other dev. ngos

    Cons

    overlapping functions among senior-management roles
    senior management has no interest in or incentive for doing a better job by endorsing/setting realistic project expectations, following annual strategies, and overall being accountable
    Mid-level employees and senior management are aware of the problems of working in development, *think* that this organization is different, but really are in for job-security

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve management involvement and accountability, project expectations should be set in accordance to organizational capacity
