I have been working at FHI 360 full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Overall the staff is very friendly; pay is mediocre but healthcare/parking/transportation/403b (retirement) benefits are acceptable

Cons

Very unorganized; internal communication significantly lacking; not a lot of room for growth and advancement and no clear path for doing so; program officers are treated as admin (secretaries and even personal assistants); work is repetitive and mindless of nature; job descriptions are so vague that it puts one in a position to have no boundaries with their job role; No professional development opportunities or educational assistance plans

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR needs to come up with a better system for advancement - maybe a series of objectives or goals one must meet in order to be considered for a promotion/advancement; Also, the internal communication problems are in critical need of attention

    I worked at FHI 360 full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The message FHI puts out is good. To help people.

    Cons

    "Used" to be focused on enpowerig services and research in the field.
    Sr Management has no idea of what happens under them
    "Technology" was thought of as a tool. Implemented out a global network allowing project/program offices/site integration of IT systems (email, collaboration, telephony) with corporate offices.
    HR is a joke.
    Sr. IT manamgent is focused on cutting budgets, not keeping talent, outsourcing. Duct Tape and Bailing wire to keep systems running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you loose the 90% of the team that built the global infrastructure in less than 2yrs and wonder why your infrastructure is not working, read the exit interviews and look at your leaders.
