    Very positive experience in general. Can be very demanding at times.

    I have been working at Amnesty International

    Pros

    Work with a variety of people from all backgrounds, with expert knowledge in their field

    Cons

    Can be very demanding at time and frustrating as positive impact in the human rights field is long time and difficult to assess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to listen more to those who are doing the work

    How depressing a Human Right organisation has forgotten what it stands for

    I have been working at Amnesty International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great cause and brand. The opportunity to hear about and meet incredible HRDs and their stories.

    Cons

    The Management do not know what they are doing and are hardly in the office. They are cowardly and outsource work and decision to agencies. Bullying is also tolerated- it's just shameful.

    Amnesty international UK exists on dining out on its name and past glories whereas the reality is the leadership and lady at the helm are terrible and rely on lower staff and ( naive enthusiasm of it's) volunteers to do all the work. Most of the management have been their years - some have never worked anywhere else, and probably wouldn't get a job elsewhere.

    Good staff are 'let go' as they would challenge management and this unfair status quo - Hence the high turnover. Its so sad - Amnesty and its members deserve a hold lot more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're a shambles and a disgrace - fix up or move out.
