I worked at United Nations Foundation full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

UNF is uniquely positioned at a nexus between private, public, and the UN. The company benefits are amazing.

Cons

The leadership has an authoritarian leadership style, in which they are not transparent about decision making and do not communicate. Entire departments and individuals have been fired at the drop of a hat with no explanation. This breeds a culture of fear within the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with employees. Develop transparent hiring and promotions.

    I worked at United Nations Foundation as an intern

    Pros

    The UN Foundation has really engaging colleagues who manage to do incredible, meaningful work while still leading interesting lives outside of the office. Office culture is also great - lots of fun and very supportive. This makes working at the UN Foundation a total pleasure.

    Cons

    Not much comes to mind - my experience was overwhelmingly positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for interns to continue working for UNF in consultancies or full-time entry level positions.
