upper management needs to be more transparent

(Former Employee)

Pros- nice, intelligent colleagues who know their field well
- can-do IT department
- nice support staff
- good finance and program management expertise

Cons- HR department is slow to respond and not detail-oriented
- old-school cabal leading the company
- kill-the-messenger attitude at leadership level
- bureaucratic
- hire older, staid chiefs of party in the field and pass over dynamic middle managers
- lack of transparency at upper levels in HQ and field offices
- quality of management and operations in different field offices varies widely
- some shady things appear to be happening in field offices and donors are starting to notice
- some support offices in HQ are staffed by people that don't want to do their jobs - just pass the buck

Advice to Senior Management- sunlight is the best antiseptic
- don't punish staff who bring issues to your attention - approach the issues with an open mind and seek to learn from those below you
- foster a culture of transparency and openness to new ideas
- don't hire only older COPs - look at how donors are hiring these days (younger, more dynamic managers) and follow suit
- conduct internal financial and programmatic audits at both HQ and in field offices - and follow the recommendations to continually improve the company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
