I worked at Denali Advanced Integration full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- People are happy to speak to younger staff who want to learn more about a specific area.
- Junior staff are encouraged to travel when possible (e.g. to help start up or close down projects, which is where operations skills that junior staff have are most useful)
- Ability to work at HQs in the DC area OR on projects overseas (the latter after internal networking)
- DAI tries to be more efficient in order to get a bigger bang for clients'/donors' buck and created a Business Process Management unit to work on efficiency, which is rare in international development.

Cons

- It is a fairly large firm for the industry, which means there are bureaucratic issues, especially since project teams depend on cross-functional collaboration.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Turnover was high among Project Coordinators, partly because of the nature of the job (people tend to stay two years and either get promoted, leave DAI to get a field assignment with another organization, or go to grad school). When I left, there was an idea floating around of creating a clearer career path for PCs so that they saw there was room to grow -- either up into technical roles or into operational ones. If implemented, this could help PCs stay on longer.

    Pros

    The really only pro at this company is some of the people, who are stuck their because they sue anyone they want to keep that leaves. Turnover is amazing!

    Cons

    They will hire you at above market rate, have you sign their non compete, then change your role and pay. They put the word bonus in your pay which allows them to not pay you even if you hit your goal, and they do it ALL THE TIME. I REALLY WANT OUT, but can't afford to hire an attorney. Please, someone buy this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good way to get experience in new roles and learn on the job, pay is good to start.

    Cons

    inconsistent pay, no employee development, chew you up and spit you out mentality unless you party with the cool kids or are related to the owners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop the talent you have, invest in modern systems, get serious about the business and reward the people who make you successful.
