I have been working at Aga Khan Development Network

Pros

Really wide portfolio of development issues; great career exposure
One of the more reliable international development organizations in its countries of operation

Cons

For non-Ismailis, it can be hard to be promoted to top positions.
Highest management, often Ismailis (the equivalent of a "political appointee") may not have management experience at all.
Grant chasing happens because His Highness funds are decreasing year by year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management should speak local languages and respect local staff equally to expatriate staff
