I have been working at International Relief and Development

Pros

Very flexible; great opportunities for advancement; respects field office input. Has a broad range of competencies, which means that many kinds of projects are fair game.

Cons

IRD is a young company and is experiencing growing pains. It is important that the company find people with deep experience and new ideas so that the growth pattern can be sustained.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to shed some former employees who are no longer producing results. It is important that IRD build on its past rather than be captured and enslaved by it.

    I have been working at International Relief and Development full-time

    Pros

    IRD was a great place to work for a long time - innovative, proactive, pro-employee

    Cons

    Money got tight and SMT started circling the wagons, putting in senior leadership that killed morale or are not up to the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will attract great people - listen to them and allow IRD to grow and innovate without the stress of having to cover their backsides all the time. Arthur Keys needs to accept new points of view and allow new experienced executives in at the top levels of IRD. They've lost some great senior people over the years and I know certain orgs won't work with them because of how word gets around. Tremendous turnover at the director-level for years - what does that tell you?
