Great Mission:Lousy Leadership

I have been working at Compassion International

Pros

The mission of Compassion is noble and good. The International staff are very dedicated. I wish the same could be said for US leaders.

Cons

An addiction to change...organizational amnesia...a lust for the new and different, the "glitz". Leaders who espouse principles and values and then don't exercise them themselves. They have sold this fable to the entire organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek feedback from outside of the executive leadership team. Without it, you come to believe your own stories and you lose honesty.

    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 worked at Compassion International full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Children are being cared for through this organisation.
    There are possibilities of progression within the company (the higer you climb the higher you are exposed to senior management where the cracks will start to show).
    There are great benefits for parents, obviously with it being a child charity organisation.

    Cons

    Senior management behaviour is very judgmental and extremely narrow minded. Unwilling to listen to any new ideas, they know best and if it's not something they are used to doing you will be criticised and ignored, especially if you are'nt connected to their known network. They do the same thing year on year and consider it innovative simply because they've changed an image. They pretend to care about their staff, but it's not genuine. They remind me very much of the pharisees described in the bible by Jesus.
    Very odd company culture vibe. They practice christian rituals but that's exactly what it is; a ritual, lacking real genuinity behind the action.
    The company values and ethos are not reflected within the organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be good for the HQ management to see what actually goes on in the worldwide offices.
    Get out and see what's happening in the rest of the world and in various Christian communities. Things have changed are are changing. Adapt yourselves to the world of modern christianity if you want more sponsors.
