    Former Employee - Programs Director in Silver Spring, MD

    I worked at ADRA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ADRA used to be an exciting place to work. Mission focused. Then the president retired and they brought in all manner of incompetents to take his place. Today, it's going downhill fast.

    Cons

    The entire executive team is male and there is not one American on the Executive team with headquarters in MD. One of the executives basically has no job; they keep him because he knows where the bodies are buried.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using ADRA as a stepping stone for your own careers.
