I worked at Compassion International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Focused on their vision. Field staff in other countries really reaching out to kids like they say.

Cons

Management does not know how to lead the size of organization they have grown into. May of the senior leadership are ill equipped to run a multinational organization. The politics are terrible and you are either in or out of the crowd. They is a very poor example of Christian leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are failing to abide by your own policies and treat employees who innovate with disdain. Mediocrity and the good ol' boy network is alive an well here. If management continues to treat staff and vendors they way they do, the lawsuits and reputation issues are not far behind.

    Hesitant to make employees accountable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a Christian organization, I see that mananagement doesn't make others accountable (ie. they are too nice). People who should move on from the organization are allowed to stay giving other bright and talented people who want to work at Compassion only temp jobs or no chances. Also, many employees in professional positions are worked too much. They become stressed and burn out, but don't want to leave because they want to serve the cause.
