Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at Action Against Hunger USA as an intern for less than a year

ProsVery professional and highly organized international development organization. Smaller than the biggest names (UN et al, IRC, Red Cross, Oxfam, MSF, etc.) but very respectable. Little doubt to commitment or ability to make real impact within their very narrow mission focus. Management is very good. Clear commitment to professional development for the duration of the internship, always finding time to share information and mentor. Office is simple, adequate... aka NGO. Conference call tech doesn't always work. Business casual every day. A good place to work.

ConsAs an intern, the biggest hope is to be hired. A challenge at ACF-USA, as the office already completed a major expansion a couple years ago so there won't be an influx of hires. Also, as with most major international NGOs, the most interesting jobs are for PhD or other highly experienced candidates. Also witnessed other interns passed over for positions given less qualified candidates. Not easy to climb the ladder on the program side.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Only if you really want to go to the field and you don't have expectations.
