I have been working at International Rescue Committee full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The greatest aspects of working at the IRC are the flexibility and independence afforded its employees, no matter the level.

Cons

For such a large humanitarian organization, salary does not seem as competitive as it could be. This needs to be improved to retain high quality staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the intellectual enthusiasm about the work that IRC does as well as the emphasis on personal growth.
