    Challenging work, but the outcomes for people in need are very rewarding.
    CEO has reshaped the organization to significantly improve the culture.

    Co-chairs can create an environment with "fear of judgment", limiting the dialogue necessary for risk-taking.

    I worked at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked on an amazing, cross-disciplinary agile team of very smart individuals. Lots of opportunities for learning. Experience looked great on a resume.

    Cons

    Massive egos get in the way of the wonderful mission. Back-stabbing co-workers fight and claw their way to the top. Employees are paralysed when it comes to decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value all of your employees, not just the ones who make the most noise. Provide opportunities for growth throughout the org.
