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

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsThe 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.

ConsGiven 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).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
