    I have been working at Management Sciences for Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    MSH's DC office is in a good location, ability to work with field staff has been a good experience, I've learned a lot from senior staff (but haven't been allowed to practice it).

    Cons

    Many of the administrative/program coordinator level staff wind up leaving after 1 year since there is no movement up unless you have a masters, ditto for Progam Officers/Associates. Often much of the "technical" work is only done by the older staff who have been at MSH for 10-15 years. There isn't a desire across the centers/projects to train junior staff, and this causes many of us to want to leave.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits!
    This is a good place for people who want to get hands on experience in the international public health field.

    Cons

    If you are not part of a clique you will have a hard time advancing your career or getting the respect you deserve. In theory the organization promotes collaboration within the organization, but unfortunately it rarely translates into reality. Employees rarely display humility, i.e. an eagerness to try something new and embrace ideas no matter the source.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to embrace change and advance people no matter their clique status within the company. Diversity, Diversity, Diversity --- needs to be a priority for the board of directors, management team and upper management. An ethnically diverse environment in the rank and file only is not an ethnically diverse organization.
