Pros

Great work environment, a great deal of diversity. The schedule was flexible and as a intern I was exposed to many situations that have helped me grow.

Cons

There isn't a stable workforce so that sometimes leaves the work to a few people. This makes projects sometimes exceed time restrictions.

    Pros

    Good substantive work and meaningful impact on the conduct of the charity's work. Great work-life balance with okay opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Company struggles with its religious identity which can get in the way of some of the things it's doing - it's heavily branded as christian and that closes as many doors as it opens internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more frequently and clearly with your employees.

    Pros

    Your doing work that helps others in need.

    Cons

    Each affiliate is only as good as its Board of Directors. Some B.O.D. members serve only to line their resumes and could really care less about the "mission".

    Advice to Management

    Management should play a more active role in understanding how the B.O.D manages each affiliate. The fact that each affiliate is run autonomously means a bad or corrupt B.O.D. can not only distract from the mission, but in some cases actually break the law. A good and active B.O.D. however can really have a positive impact on the employees, mission and community. It really is a crap shoot.
