great people and organization that are dedicated to the mission

Director (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO

I have been working at Compassion International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe mission is compelling and the quality of staff is hard to beat. The working conditions are quite good and there is ability to move around

ConsThe organization has silos and senior leaders, though seasoned, are out of touch on how to run a mid/large sized NGO.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
