    Pros

    You will learn a lot about how USAID-funded international health projects, from the concept phase (helping to write a proposal) to the management phase (tracking expenditures, managing partnerships, following terms of the contract, following rules and regulations, etc.)

    The organization is very flat, so you are given a lot of opportunities to learn on the job. Also, resources are available for professional development. Given the right match, people can move laterally into other positions.

    Cons

    Given the flat organization, there is not a lot of room for moving up a ladder... though there are several examples of people finding a permanent home at JSI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the organization's management is excellent - it seems very proactive about making JSI a good place to work.
