    I worked at Global Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Headquarters office: very dedicated, kind staff, good mission, and strong financial controls. Good opportunities for learning about international development and USAID. It is a great place for new graduates, Peace Corps volunteers, and/or people who want to enter into the development field, as well as for well established development professionals/expats who are looking to relocate a strong, stable organization in the DC area. Senior management are receptive to listening to staff concerns.

    Cons

    Headquarters office: For junior staff, pay is consistently lower than the market rate at other organizations, and promotions are rare. Organization does not have a formal career ladder.

    Advice to Management

    It is easy to find out what people make at equivalent positions in the development world. If lower salaries are offered to talented junior employees, they may take them and then leave after a short period of time. Figuring out a promotion system similar to what many other NGOs have done in the sector would also help with retaining strong employees.
