    Pros

    The IRC is great for people into non-profits. The refugees are sweet and the office environment is good. Management tends to be flexible with time off.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, constantly busy, too many interns without experience, poor inter office communications. There is not a good source of work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely chill out the office a bit. There is no need to hire so many (unpaid) interns. Work on communications.

    Great organization to work for if you care about humanitarian issues.

    Pros

    The IRC is definitely much more structured/organized than many smaller NPOs. This can be both good and bad (see cons). The clients and staff are typically great to work with.

    Cons

    Given the size of the organization, it can often feel overly bureaucratic. US programs seem to receive far less attention that international programs (this can be good or bad depending on where you work).
