Pros

Great environment, high potential for mobility across departments. Run like a for-profit, so highly efficient, and produces results.

Cons

Difficult to get to know everyone - not many opportunities to meet everyone in such a big company. Corporate-like culture.

Advice to Management

Learn to value younger/new employees (recent grads). Many are full of ideas, but are relegated to administrative tasks for years (rather than just in the beginning).

    Pros

    CI is full of talented, energetic, and passionate people who truly care about their jobs. It's a highly flexible environment allowing alternative hours, working from, travel opportunities, and good leave policies. Regular company events, happy hours, 'brown bags' allow social and networking opportunities.

    Cons

    As a large worldwide organization it is possible to get lost. There are limited upward advancement opportunities. Recent changes in structure and mission have been challenging to morale.

    Advice to Management

    CI has grown very fast and become a great organization, but there seems to be some element of 'founder's sydrome', while the organization hasn't lost its dynamism it has begun to drift.

    I have been working at Conservation International as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative thinking encouraged and supported, passionate team of people. Experience is valued and the work is always interesting and challenging. Great opportunities to meet people from conservation agencies all over the world. Great opportunities for knowledge sharing.

    Cons

    Pay below South African Payscale, no performance bonuses, not enough career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Management should update salaries to SA Pay Scale levels. Individual performance should be rewarded with bonuses and more should be done to provide career advancement opportunities.
