    I worked at Grameen Foundation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Grameen Foundation attracts first rate people, high on talent and low on ego, and puts them to work on a noble mission to reduce poverty through pragmatic yet innovative solutions. Employees are trusted to produce results and allowed to work flexibly, especially if they are productive. There are many ways to surface new ideas for even the most junior staff, and many ways to voice dissent. The capabilities of mangers has increased over the years due to training of people who were promoted with little management experience. Professional development is encouraged. The board is highly involved but in good ways. The organization is not afraid to take risks and be outspoken about what it believes.

    Cons

    A tendency towards consensus-based decision-making in pockets of the organization can sometimes slow down decision-making. The message about what the organization does can be muddled at times, since some leaders emphasize what they do or feel comfortable with more than what the overall strategy is.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the future but don't forget to take pride in the organization's past achievements and also the Grameen brand. Tap into the network of former staff. Better leverage the Bankers without Borders volunteer reserve corps and its brand.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grameen Foundation (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email for inviting to me the phone interview after a week. After the phone interview, I went to the Seattle office for on-site interview. The whole process took about 2 weeks. Everything was straight forward and the last interview took about 1 hour.
