Great company, lots of opportunities to grow.

Deputy Director (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe people are fantastic, and the culture is very positive, with an emphasis on collegiality and personal growth. You will learn the ins and outs of USAID project implementation and most likely have the opportunity to travel. The management structure is fairly transparent, giving employees the chance to express concerns. Lots of professional development opportunities for self-starters.

ConsLike many companies in international development, there is a heavy emphasis on winning new business with USAID and other donors (not necessarily a negative, depends on your perspective). Sometimes support staff contributions are undervalued.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, but try and integrate support staff into core business activities to motivate and inspire them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
