Pros

Occupies a great niche within the environmental NGO space, the org is growing rapidly and evolving so the work is challenging, people are friendly and hard-working

Cons

Lack of management training in upper management combined with lack of time to devote to on-the-job training means that mentorship opportunties are few and far between. The company does provide each staff person a generous budget for external training. Many systems were designed for a larger organization (which Rare expects to grow into) so work can seem onerous at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more staff management opportunities
Grow all functions in the regional offices to make them more independent of head quarters
