What Employees Say
I have been working at Save the Children full-time for more than 8 years
I have worked for Save the Children for over 7 years. It is a relaxed, fun, supportive and family-friendly work environment. The leadership (including C-suite) are all very approachable and... transparent with staff and with their decision-making processes. There is also a culture of addressing problems head-on and moving forward, which I have not seen in many other organizations. The benefits are wonderful, with generous leave, including family leave, community-service leave and generous retirement benefits.
1. Although I've been happy with my salary, the buzz in the business is that our salaries are low compared to the industry standard. 2. For international work, the bureaucracy makes it difficult... to get things done and move money and work to field offices. 3. New CEO starting in January 2020, so there is some uncertainty about the direction this will take the organization. 4. Opportunities for growth are limited and although there is a lot of racial and ethnic diversity in rank and file employees, the higher up you go, the "whiter" the organization it gets.

Non-paid, not all departments are as well connected as they maybe could be
