Pros

Great staff - fun and intelligent. The mission is noble.

Cons

The upper management makes decisions based on emotions and politics instead of concentrating on the success of the company. Things are promised that don't come to fruition. Huge amount of staff turnover. There is no clear company strategy and no directive to staff in order to know we are working toward a common goal. Company information comes across by rumor.

Advice to Management

Start communicating to your employees. A little trust and respect toward the employees that you think are good goes a long way. Stop making everyone feel replaceable.

    Pros

    There are great people who work at CHF, very dedicated to their jobs and the organization's mission. Good atmosphere in the office and meaningful work. The headquarter offices are nice.

    Cons

    CHF doesn't offer the highest salary levels, they are lower than other similar organizations in the DC area. Their benefits package is standard. Sometimes the office is a bit slow paced.

    Advice to Management

    CHF has great potential to be a more successful International Development organization. The senior managemetn needs to be more strategic in its fundraising activities and build more institutional comptencies within the organization.


  2. Highly dependent on direct managers...

    Pros

    - Strong middle management - Cross cutting expertise - Field programs often well managed - Some strong business development employees

    Cons

    - HQ often in disarray - Poor focus, attempting to transition to different types of work - Staff are hired for a specific task, not the long term

    Advice to Management

    Professional development is neglected and should be more of a focus. Retaining staff requires giving them the ability to move up and/or continue to learn.
