    I worked at Social Accountability International

    Pros

    It was very hands on and I learned a lot and very felt out of place as an intern. Everyone seemed to value your opinion when questions or ideas were raised. It was a great opportunity.

    Cons

    The office could use more space than it has.

    Pros

    SAI has an interesting mission and approach, which, on paper, seems like it could realize human rights for people worldwide in smarter ways than they average nonprofit. They do impressive work with supply train and certifications and are responsible for the SA8000. The office is small, which can be nice. The hierarchy doesn't seem particularly crazy on a day-to-day, and co-workers are generally nice. Hours are semi flexible which is good--people can come in later than 9 and people don't usually stay long after 5 or 6.

    Cons

    The two CEOs are out of touch with the organization and the current landscape generally. Staff are hungry for leadership change and haven't seen it. Pay is low, resources are poor (outdated computers and equipment, tiny office, depressing cubicles) and benefits are terrible. For a worker's rights organization, you'd think working there would get you decent health care and time off but absolutely not the case here--some of the worst benefits I have ever seen. Managers are overworked and unresponsive. Moral can be low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New leadership, better benefits, better pay. This is not a competitive salary + benefit package in any way.
