    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsSolid mission with good leadership at the top. Good opportunities to grow in your career doing life changing work. Great benefits.

    ConsOrganization can be a bit rigid tough to change. Staff sometimes fear failure and will go over board in making sure everything is setup perfectly before moving forward on a project.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great mission, amazing people, big goals.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe mission: They have a compelling and a smart mission that will make you want to give your all to the people they serve.

    The people: Smart, professional, excellent, and just plain fun!

    ConsBig goals with little resources.

    Management: Although improving, there isn't much of a focus on management. For example, many managers in Marketing don't value their staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart prioritizing people.

    Good mission, but losing it's basic focus and getting sloppy

    ConsTheir is significant lack of communication between HQ and field offices. Interns especially will not be supported once in the field.

    Great company and great people but work is demanding

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe mission couldn't be a better one. The people are amazing.

    ConsBig goals are set, but because it is a non-profit, there aren't always enough resources to accomplish those goals.

    Professional work environment with a cause.

    Director of Recruiting (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsIt was refreshing to work with top talent that were united behind a cause.
    Change doesn't happen overnight, but good ideas make it to the top.
    The onboarding and employee retention efforts are taken seriously. The Executive and HR teams highly value the staff.

    ConsIt ruins your outlook on all future careers. Working at IJM is a truly unique experience that will help you grow personally and professionally. It will be difficult for any job to compare.

    Awesome work environment and great cause

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsSuper supportive and welcoming staff. Great work environment. Staff was always willing to take time to meet with you and give career advice. They do a great job of educating new interns and staff about their mission and the organization.

    ConsIntern work is very administrative sometimes, which is pretty normal for an internship.
