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

Pros

Potential to reach many vulnerable people who need access to quality and affordable healthcare in developing countries, affecting change on a massive scale, leeway to be innovative and carve out a niche for your work, organization is constantly seeking to grow and to be the best version of itself

Cons

Inexperienced managers, lack of mentors to facilitate professional development, little to no established professional development opportunities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start focusing on the value for money that younger staff bring to the organization. There are many multi-talented junior analysts that are motivated and committed to advancing the MSH cause and work, who are being overlooked for opportunities.

    I have been working at Management Sciences for Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I work with extremely gifted individuals and there are few restrictions on the things departmentally I get to learn. That's about it.

    Cons

    Limited growth, overambitious leadership team that ignores the urgency of compliance, looks to phase out "cumbersome" processes, while trying to enforce abstract ideals. Little room for growth and advancement. Too great a focus on technical experts, ignoring the core groups such as Accounting and Finance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please note that your core staff, such as Accounting, Contracts, Procurement and Benefits *need* to be reinforced. Consider creating a compliance and training department instead of abstract goals such as becoming a "learning organization." Fix the wheel before driving. Please stop coupling an inordinate number of initiatives atop already overwhelming daily responsibilities. Understand all sides, and that the organization could run much more smoothly if we grounded ourselves instead of trying to be overly abstract. EG. PPRD: useless to a person whose base work culture does not permit "outstanding" action. Stop discussing accountability when we have no "ownership" of any piece of our processes. Reward all equally. Consider returning to Tuition Assistance/Reimbursement. Avoid discussing the topic of religion at work. Start enforcing workplace equality---those at the top should respect those at the bottom. Try and understand a process before attempting to fix it.
