    I worked at ICLEI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They met often as a group with people in other locations calling in. There seemed to be some camaraderie between employees that had worked there for years. They had good benefits and the pay was low to average. Location and access to transportation.

    Cons

    Management did not care about the employees and were biased towards some employees. They did not offer flexible hours and even demanded long hours be worked. The feeling in the building was one that was depressing and cold. The board is international and trying to have policies and paperwork signed off on was difficult. They didn't follow laws in the U.S. or know them and didn't accept guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve your employees in key decisions. Have an inviting atmosphere at work with opportunities for some fun during the month. Review your pay scale and your board structure towards properly governing the U.S. offices.

    Pros

    Only take a job here if you are just out of university studies and need a little something on your CV.

    Cons

    This place has major management and structural problems (Bonn office). They constantly hire and replace young interns and employees who are underpaid and burned out. Experienced employees are not treated with respect and are not able realize the insight they bring from outside. ICLE is an outdated, chaotic place that lacks a clear vision, lacks organization and seems to be living in the 1990s (just look at their logo).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Fire yourself or take Management 101 classes
    2. Get a clear vision of what you want to be. 2-3 goals max...not 8 vague "agendas"
    3. Rebrand yourself if you want to survive.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
