I have been working at International Rescue Committee full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The clients, the colleagues, the positive work atmosphere. There is nothing better than the IRC Youth Program in New York City. Everyone is super driven, ready to take on the extra task, take the extra step to make sure that everything is the absolute best for all chidlren at the agency. It's inspiring to work with such individuals and of course above all : the clients! The families, the kids are so inspiring and a pure joy to work with.

Cons

Sometimes there could be some disorganization from the administrative side and a lack of calirty of job duties. While it is great to do everything for these kids, it could also be nice for the Youth Program to provide more clarity in terms of job requirements.

    I have been working at International Rescue Committee as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The IRC staff are themselves a very diverse bunch who speak many languages. Nearly everyone has extensive travel experience and is passionate about what they do. Their approach can sometimes be to throw you into the fire but everyone is supportive and the place is run quite efficiently. Most people seem pretty happy.

    Cons

    The IRC is not a huge non-profit so corporation with supervisor and a few people around the office might not be optional. Working for this non-profit implies exercising empathy and having understanding of what it means to be a refugee. The resources are there but one does have to work hard to see the results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the soccer team and the cultural sharing events. These are what make it such an interesting place to work and grow.
