    ABA ROLI is a great place to work if you can handle some frustrations.

    Pros

    - Due to a chaotic administrative structure, there are great opportunities to learn about development work from the ground up. - Junior staff are given expanded responsibility versus other similar institutions. - Good work atmosphere with friendly, committed people. - ABA ROLI is one of the few institutions in the world that does international rule of law or legal capacity building programs.

    Cons

    - Insufficient focus on professional development of staff. - Limited institutional efforts to share knowledge about programs, successes, etc. - Institution is not administratively set up for international development work and does not have the planning capacity to effectively address this.

    Advice to Management

    - More attention should be paid to how the institution is structured, rather than trying to address individual issues ad-hoc.

    Pros

    Really focused on doing things right. They have the motto of 'if the ABA isn't doing it right, what hope is their for other employer's to do the right thing.'

    Cons

    The right to telecommute is not universally applied.
