My colleagues were very friendly and helpful, but the salary was a bit low.

Consultancy (Former Employee)
Dhaka (Bangladesh)

ProsThe working environment was great. The causes that The Asia Foundation works for are very crucial. SO I gained a lot of job satisfaction during my contract period. The management is efficient so I had no trouble with anything, it was over all a very good experience.

ConsI worked for The Asia Foundation for an independent contract. I had to write a report on a tow-day long conference held at their Dhaka office. It was a great learning experience and the working environment was very good, but in my opinion the salary for the job was a bit low. My expectation was that they would pay me at least $10 per hour, but the pay was around $8.5 per hour.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo settle the payment issues in detail before beginning the work so the employer is well aware what to expect and have the opportunity to negotiate if s/he wishes to do so.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
