I have been working at Conservation International full-time (Less than a year)
Top-notch benefits; diverse workforce; engaging culture; smart, passionate employees; and most of all, the chance to be involved in incredibly meaningful work. Business operations (HR, finance, etc) all seem to be staffed with agile, helpful, competent individuals.
While it’s a 35-hour workweek, it’s highly unlikely you’ll only work 35 hours; 40-45 is more realistic. There is the usual office politics and drama, but no more here than any other average workplace.
Advice to Management
Focus on ways to streamline internal processes to maximize efficiency. Much of the aforementioned 40-45 hour workweek can be directly attributed to bureaucracy.
I applied online. I interviewed at Conservation International (Washington, DC) in August 2017.
First I had a phone interview with one member of the team the position would serve (it was supposed to be 15 minutes but mine ended up being about 25), then I sent them a writing sample and they asked to schedule an in-person interview with three of the people I would be serving in the position. This interview was supposed to be 45 minutes to an hour, and mine was about 45-50 minutes.
