    Pros

    I wonderful mission, many good employees who were not given the opportunity to share their knowledge. Solid reputation and great potential to make a difference in the world.

    Cons

    Currupt Human Resources, serious violations of funds expenditures, very high hidden bonus to management, manipulation of budget structiures in several bids, Manipulated reports to USAID regularly on project expenditures. Senior manager taking positions overseas but still receiving the same high salary as Senior VP plus expat benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the corruption. Internal politics. Allow finance managers to perform their jobs according to Federal regulations. Stop manipulation of overhead in order to win contracts from multilateral organizations and foundations.


  2. Be prepared for an absolutely ridiculous low-ball salary offer

    Pros

    Tons of trainings and professional development opportunities are offered, if you can make them work into your work schedule. Some supervisors are more helpful than others in facilitating this

    Cons

    Salaries are significantly lower than competitors, mandatory 9 hour days impede work life balance. Benefits were just OK. My particular supervisor was TERRIBLE and their HR processes weren't at all prepared to deal with grievances about a supervisor, only about subordinates

    Advice to Management

    360 review process might help to identify managers like mine who have no business being in supervisory positions. Exit interviews might also be a useful tool
