    Pros

    Gave me the ability to use my skills and help the local community.

    Cons

    The IT services were appalling; I was waiting for my expenses to be paid for months. We also had very bad connectivity in our office which hindered our job specially when competing for bids. Some offices had top of the line PCs sitting there in empty rooms while we were struggling. I do not think the funders would be happy to see this waste.

    They claim that they want to care for their volunteers but my experience was bad. We would have loved to hear more from management and Sir Nick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
