I have been working at Global Communities full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Colleagues are mostly easy going and flexible (unlike management). There are many wonderful people, with diverse experiences and skill sets, both at headquarters and on the field

Cons

Overworking junior level staff. Very low pay compared to other NGOs, resulting in frequent staff turnover. The management looks out only for themselves.

Advice to Management

Management needs to find ways to maintain staff retention and boost employee morale. It is no coincidence that the only people who've been there over two years are all VPs and directors.

    Pros

    You're a part of good work that benefits people around the globe. Non-profit, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    CHF is over-reliant on CHF grants. When a project ends, so can one's employment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about and plan to increase private funding, make it happen. Also, don't keep your staff in the dark.

    Pros

    Benefits and salary are good, many of the people are good. However, executive favors those who are not contributing because they are flattered by the pandering. They overlook the friction, the lack of results, the waste of money.

    Cons

    Politics, lack of business ethics, favoritism,
