Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at International Crisis Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Once an amazing organization, now ruined by incompetent management

Cons

Dismal management headed by Louise Arbour, a Canadian judge who knows nothing about how to run an organization or about conflict. A terrible record of financial crises and internal squabbling while she concentrated power in a little clique of UN people around her. Worst possible strategy of managing … organization is now in terminal decline.

Advice to Management

Sack Louise Arbour and her group of sociopaths

    I worked at International Crisis Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great mission, some great colleagues

    Cons

    Catastrophically poor management has led to a financial collapse, massive lay offs, the eradication of two major programs in Europe and Asia. Management is focused on a tiny self-interested clique who act in a personal vindictive manner towards anyone who expresses any dissent. Louise Arbour, a supposed liberal lion, is actually secretive, authoritarian, barely versed in international issues and incapable of inspiring staff.

    Advice to Management

    Louise Arbour should go. Only way to solve the problem.
