    It's a good place to stop at but not the place for a long career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCapacity building of the staff. Normal working hours. Qualified staff at the Head Quatrers. Normal work load. Good programs.

    ConsDisconnection between the Head Quarters in Oslo and the Country offices. Huge gap in work conditions between the International Staff and the National Staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter connection between the Head Quarters and the National Staff Councils

    Waste of time and not a place to really build a career in if you want to be involved in the private sector.

    Procurement and Logistics Officer (Former Employee) Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsGood Salary, good benefits, good pension

    ConsVery bad management and also just to be specific Dutch people can be very irritating and also very not professional

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are supposed to mingle with national staff and know that national staff can takeover. If this truly happens, which is meant to be in the agenda of all NRC country offices around the world. Then this mean expatriates will have to leave since they accomplished the supposedly called development of national staff, but will not happen since they are getting paid very VERY high salaries compared with local!. Bottom line is, they become very greed and very not humanitarian as what NRC promotes. Also, Norwegians are nice people :)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
