I worked at AmeriCares Foundation

Pros

The salaries are good. With little experience you can get a good title and lots of perks like travel abroad and meeting high level people. There are opportunities for people willing to go along with organizational agendas. Good work/life balance.

Cons

The company culture feels more focused on pleasing donors and raising funds than having a positive impact. There is a lack of transparency within the organization and some of the donation practices are questionable. There's a lack of expertise among the leadership. There's tons of turnover, as people realize what the situation is and quickly leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The organization needs less focus on image and more on substance in the work. The focus should be on helping people not on pleasing donors. More transparency and more critical-thinking among the leadership is needed.

    I worked at AmeriCares Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Warm, supportive company culture that is consciously cultivated. Excellent work-life balance. Lots of interesting opportunities given to relatively junior staff. Mission-driven.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility--many people stay in the same role for several years and do not have opportunities for advancement. Pay is not great. Very meeting-heavy culture--sometimes we would have meetings about planning our next meeting, which could be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for role/title advancement to prevent constant staff turnover on some teams.
