Pros

Great benefits, opportunities to travel, employee-centric, opportunities to directly contribute to the projects and interact with international colleagues

Cons

Some of the upper management are very academic and a little stuffy, working for USAID requires dealing with a lot of red tape and formalities, need to change course at the drop of a hat to respond to USAID requests, finance & operations staff are not seen as equal team members and have little opportunity to make valuable contributions or travel.

    Pros

    On an individual level, the company has many interesting, accomplished, and competent people. It also has a good benefits package, lots of vacation, and tends to be pretty accommodating of its employees life demands.

    Cons

    There is little attention paid to to lower- and mid-level employees. Technical work tends to stay only at the highest level, and doesn't give younger staff opportunities for professional growth. Also, there is a lack of transparency in how decisions are made about promotions and salaries. The pay differential between lower and high level staff is pretty substantial for an NGO.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from the "old boys club" mentality at the upper level of the organization, and start encouraging and rewarding growth and contributions at all levels of the organization.

    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 Management

    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.
