I worked at World Vision International full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

International Travel, committed people, values driven mission, ambitious goals, good people, great work life balance and solid leadership structure

Cons

Some elements of the organization (particularly in the US) are overly religious and the office is not very forward thinking in this regard... but in international offices it is much more open

    I have been working at World Vision International full-time

    Pros

    Strong and ethical values, great social teaching, great atmosphere and family like environment, great knowledge sharing amongst peers. The place to be if you want to know how you can contribute towards poverty reduction and use your skills to help the less fortunate.

    Cons

    As a big organisation bureaucracy at times slows decision making on important project or programming issues affecting implementation and at times stressing out the community that is meant to be served.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bureaucracy is a necessary evil for organisations to be accountable but also threatens innovation within the organisation and frustrate staff.

    I worked at World Vision International

    Pros

    Great flexibility, Mostly great coworkers, awesome volunteers, exceptional life-changing experience
    Wonderful reward in helping change lives and community

    Cons

    Poor salary unless you have an existing mainstream of income like a well to do husband, business owner or retired with great pension so forth. Can be very mentally and spiritually draining handling otjers problems and spirits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure leadership is truly in it to "HELP/TEACH" others up with the LOVE of CHRIST not to look down there nose or for self recognition/righteousness. Offer a better salary $10/hr is just not enough for all you have to do
