    Does great work with pretty good salaries, but no job security

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork in interesting places, get a range of interesting roles, work with great people

    ConsWhen a project ends, your employment is terminated. It's very hard to start accruing benefits into a pension plan, many people are hired on renewing 9 month contracts so they never qualify for the benefits of a full employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider working on strategies to mitigate employee turnover. Loosing al the employees of a project after it ends is very costly to a company in the long-run because your talent goes to the competition, and you have to hire and train new people again.

    Disagreed with business practices

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAble to meet interesting people in the department

    ConsHot working environment in the summer. Little access to people outside of department. Many at HQ took lots of time off during summer time so I was underutilized while I was there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't reach out to donor countries for every individual project, that gives countries too much leeway in how the operations are run. In many cases this is bad for the migrant.
