    Pros

    Excellent challenges for the individual, good leadership and professional people in the field

    Cons

    As with any INGO you can work yourself to death and nobody will stop you while doing it. Burnout is a real threat

    Enforce R&R to employees in the field

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

    I have been working at Norwegian Refugee Council

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Disconnection 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 ManagementAdvice

    Better connection between the Head Quarters and the National Staff Councils

  6.  

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

    Pros

    Good Salary, good benefits, good pension

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They 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 :)
