    I worked at International Rescue Committee full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    IRC has a broad impact and strong programming in places that need it most. The organization is well respected in the humanitarian community as hiring very qualified people--smart and dedicated. People seem to most like either working in the field or in senior management at the HQ level. IRC seems to be continuing to grow.

    Cons

    IRC is often more reactive than proactive so it often felt like playing catch-up, which perhaps is the nature for working for a humanitarian organization. It is extremely difficult to get a job unless you know someone who can get your application out of the depths of HR. IRC is generally regarded as one of the lower-paying NGOs and staff benefits and recognition are lacking. Staff are very overworked and because of the NGO, emergency response nature, many staff seemed to almost compete to be considered the most overworked/dedicated. Hard to get promoted because of power structures, politics, and high competition for positions.

    Pros

    Workers are friendly and higher-ups are easy to talk to

    As an intern, I didn't get paid anything. However I found out full-time workers don't get paid enough also
