    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

    Pros

    At HFHI (Habitat's headquarters), you feel a part of inspiring work. Staff surveyed on strategic planning process. It is a prayer-oriented work culture, so some meetings begin with a spiritual reading (which could be a con for some people, but I will list it as a pro). You might be able to work remotely, at least occasionally, depending on manager and team. Good benefits and vacation. One week paid time off for "mission" work after one year of service, to attend a home build/repair in the U.S. or abroad or with another organization.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be lower than at comparable international NGOs. Leadership is hit and miss, as with any organization, with some good and others not strong or competent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more funding for professional development, conference attendance, classes. Facilitate internal groups to develop leaders and start grooming at the manager or even specialist level. Offer opportunities for social activities and cross-functional teams.
