Supportive Culture and Interesting Work.

Business Outcomes Survey Analyst (Former Employee) Portland, OR

ProsFriendly staff members are very easy to approach and are willing to make time for you to learn from them. As I worked in a small team, I am directly in touch with Program Manager in addition to my supervisor, and they were very supportive and positive. I also learned a lot from them as well as other team members.

ConsThere are many different branches within the organization - so even though I wanted to explore Mercy Corps as a whole, it was a bit overwhelming to learn all about it. Instead, I had to focus on the work that my team does, in addition to a few interesting branch of the organization (based upon type of work and region they work in.)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Forge more paths to managerial, directorial and executive leadership.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
