A good place to work overall, but employees aren't always treated great

I have been working at National Endowment for Democracy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

A very casual and friendly workplace. If on the right team, staff has a lot of freedom to work. It is a well respected organization with regional staff accepted as experts in their fields.

Cons

A big part of this is being a non-profit, but even so they are cheap. Benefits and salaries at comparable organizations are much better.

    I worked at National Endowment for Democracy full-time

    Pros

    NED is one of the most prominent NGOs, and its work is impactful and rewarding.
    Great opportunities to network.
    Great culture, and the vast majority of the staff are friendly.
    There are many conferences and talks held at NED, and employees are encouraged to go to them. Paid vacation/sick leave/personal leave is more than most similar organizations.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy. The pay is typical of an NGO/non-profit. The benefits make up for it however. There is a gap between entry level and senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more avenue for growth
