    I worked at Human Rights Watch

    Pros

    One of the most respected human rights organizations internationally. HRW does not receive funding from governments, which allows for independent agenda setting and objective reporting. Salary comparatively higher than other human rights organizations. Leadership open to feedback and input from staff.

    Cons

    Given the size of the organization, action and response tends to be slower. Reports take too long to be published.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more promotion opportunities for associates so that HRW is not viewed as a launchpad for greener pastures. Provide interns with at least a stipend instead of simply not paying them.
