    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
