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 Management

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

    AmeriCares is filled with intelligent, and compassionate people. HR always provided devoted and considerate support for their personnel home and abroad.

    Cons

    Employees are given significant responsibilities coupled with support from management. Those not prepared to work should not pursue this organization.

    Pros

    AmeriCares is made up of young, passionate, eager professionals, with an important mix of idealists and pragmatists. It difficult not to be inspired by your coworkers and the important work that each team is doing. The recent transition in senior management will bring strategic and effective change as the young organization continues to grow and evolve.

    Cons

    Nonprofits are always trying to juggle sending as much of their fundraising into the programs they support and compensating their staff for their hard work, and AmeriCares is no exception.
