Great experience with colleagues but small office so shared roles in management and implementation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at World Federation of United Nations Associations

Pros- Access to UN meetings
- Ability to be innovative and proactive, own projects
- Great camaraderie
- Management honest about expectations and office/program needs

ConsDue to lack of funding, often have to manage up and seek feedback as operations manager unavailable. If funding was secured, potential to hire senior staff and expand.

Organization's mandate is extensive so don't expect a single-issue org.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on one or two projects in program areas, less interns, invest in senior and experienced personnel

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

Good for your karma, bad for your blood pressure

Consultant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at World Federation of United Nations Associations

ProsBecause you want to help save the world, because you are into international relations and American relevance in the UN sphere. Because you believe the MDGs need more attention, that landmines are an issue that can be eradicated in this lifetime, because you believe the UN is worth fighting for.

ConsThe senior leadership is very senior. They tend to be very mature and out of touch with the latest best practices for nonprofit organizations. The people who make up the office are wonderful, but there is often a massive disconnect between the senior management and the younger, more forward-thinking staff. Turnover is high, and your career future isn't always certain.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the people you hired do their jobs, and when they recommend changes that bring the organization into the 21st century, trust their judgement.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
