I worked at FHI 360

Pros

Very good work human environment: respectful, enthusiastic, committed
Work worldwide
Work and staff in multiple sectors: health, education, social development, etc.

Cons

Field staff are "second class citizens" with no career tracks in the organization
Management leadership is weak, uncoordinated, not strategic
Systems are old fashioned and clunky: things work only because staff give 110%

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Organize as a single global organization, not two tiered
Focus on project management as the key skill
Differentiate project management from technical work

    I have been working at FHI 360

    Pros

    Got to see how a my tax dollars are being wasted. Talented junior and mid-level staff do their time and move on.

    Cons

    As jr. and mid-level talent leave, poor performers advance to sr. mgt. No sr. mgt turnover unless retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None offered. they wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Your colleagues are some of the best and brightest in their fields.

    Cons

    There is a tendency to limit very capable staff with master's degrees to pure admin work.
