I have been working at Compassion International

Pros

You do meaningful work, you are connected to people all over the world, you are making a difference for a real problem

Cons

Colorado Springs is not my favorite city to live in- it is spread out and does not have a ton of opportunities for young people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership is very respected, and you are doing a great job managing your organization.

    I have been working at Compassion International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Positive influence on children and their families. The mission is good as they are helping children in poverty to live a better and more fulfilling life.

    Cons

    Changes to hiring practices by allowing non-Christians to work there goes against the entire mission of Compassion. If an employee they like doesn't go to church, they hire them as a contractor and hope they can convert them later. Some managers in IT know that if they can walk the walk and talk the talk, they can squeeze by for a long time. They don't always promote within. Lots of sponsorship funds wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may never be the way it used to be, you've dug your hole too deep. But slow down and listen to your long time employees. 80% or more of your staff has only been there for five years. Stop paying out severances to good long term seasoned staff and wasting sponsorship funds bringing in people who are negatively impacting the culture.
