    I have been working at Development Gateway Foundation

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for learning, creatively and international travel with supportive management. Open office layout. Lots of opportunities for connecting with others. Flexible work schedule (most times). A start up style culture.

    Cons

    Heavy work load. Not the best place for people that aren't self-starters. Often poor communication between senior management and staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to staff. Make it clearer to staff what the organization's strategy is. Sometimes feels like an aid agency.

    I have been working at Development Gateway Foundation

    Pros

    Good for young people who like to be sent to developing countries for adding a line to their resume and do not expect a career at Development Gateway.

    Cons

    The company is basically dying. A series of mistakes by senior management lead to a bad financial situation. Many long-time employees have been fired, more will probably follow soon. Management is trying to act like nothing is happening but they are fooling only the kids they hired recently to bring costs down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign while it's not too late. But then again it's probably too late.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
