    Pros

    Great people. High integrity. Christ-centered vision, mission, and values. They are fulfilling God's call on their lives. Effective and efficient. Best organization I've worked for.

    Cons

    Long hours. It is a challenge to find work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take concrete steps to reduce turnover of key staff; carry out the long-term strategy without wavering (we're on the right track); hire more staff in key office

  2. It seems like the ideal organization, but is fraught with problems.

    Pros

    Outstanding vision, comprehensive understanding of poverty, holistic perspective, nice people, respected name, evangelical, hasn't abandoned the church, large enough to have options, entrepreneurial jobs.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to administer. So decentralized that it lacks accountability.

    Advice to Management

    I've seen how difficult it is to administer, and I don't want your job. Focus on product lines.
