    Pros

    Great chance to experience working at the hub of an international NGO. Lots of travel opportunities. Lots of opportunities to work with people around the world. Friendly working culture (at least it was when I was there), with social events. Laid back dress code.

    Cons

    Very process orientated. Difficult to 'get things done' due to onerous sign-off procedures. Very administrative and far removed from the field work on the ground. Lack of middle ranking jobs, so can be difficult to progress and be promoted.

    Pros

    The team was very friendly and helpful. Also got to meet alot of different customers from all walks of life who made the job very rewarding and made no two day the same! I was also given the opportunity to learn a broad range of new skills such as till work, basic accounting and pricing and labelling stock.

    Cons

    As the team were so nice it would have been nice to have had the opportunity to engage in some after team activities such as being part of a sports team or doing something in particular for charity eg sponsored run.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage team outings and sponsored activities.
