Featured Review

Current Employee - Program Officer

I have been working at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I'm constantly inspired by the work supported by BMGF, which impacts some of the biggest problems in global health. As a private foundation, they can take controversial stances and innovate in ways... you often don't see elsewhere in development. I feel lucky to contribute. Employees are treated very well. The benefits are amazing

Cons

There are the usual office politics, and a lot of credit-seeking driven by individual egos, but I think that is pretty normal in an organization, especially one trying to attract 'the best'.... Employees are treated very well, sometimes too well (e.g. business class flights), which is uncomfortable when thinking about the geographies we serve and how that money could be better spent.

Current Intern - Strategy

I have been working at Save the Children

Pros

Warm environment surrounded by people who really want to make a difference

Cons

Can be slightly disorganized, but that is expected when working for a global non-profit.
