I have been working at Save the Children

Pros

I'm proud to work at Save the Children and for an ogranization that helps to improve the quality of peoples life. Vacation is generous, if you can use it.

Cons

If you aren't one of the "in crowd" you won't get anywhere. If you want to settle, it's the place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to listen to what the employees say. If you want to move forward, you need the support of your employees and can actually learn from them.

    I have been working at Save the Children

    Pros

    Child- and outcome-focused. Really getting the work done! Good strong history and legacy. Smart and talented leaders (some). Good benefits if in the field (not so great for US-based staff). Good reputation. Diverse funding base (and not overly reliant on USG funding).

    Cons

    Long hours, can be difficult to balance work/life. Travel can be extensive. Consensus-building management atmosphere (and consensus-building is really just about getting to lowest common demoninator).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's important to get this merger with the Alliance right! It can result in a huge ROI, but it must be managed well.
