Current Employee – been working at Save the Children
Pros – Save the Children has wonder advocacy programs in the United States and Aboard. The mid-level staff are wondeful professionals to learn from and obtain a good perspective of Save the Children's mission.
Cons – Similar to most NGO's that have been around 75 years + they lack Senior Managment that have the appropirate leadership skills. Upper management and Human Resources prefereance is to avoid conflict, so it is hands off management style that feeds the rudenss among most employees towards each other. I find that the support groups do not really know how to support, they enable the employess primarly upper management that through temper tantrums. Porr management or lack there of is leading to the increasing turn over of the organization.
Advice to Senior Management – Start managing and stop hiding in your offices. Stop the polictical bickering and learn how to work together. Most importantily be accountable, less reactive and more proactive. The Humanitarin busienss is not a popularity Arena. Leave your egos at the door and make Save the Children a move effective NGO.
