    I worked at International Relief and Development full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    IRD sued USAID and won. New management removed quite a bit of deadwood. Leaner org, new name in the works, revenue is up, teams are starting to step up and take reigns of the transition well. An amazing concentration of talented and hardworking people at Senior, middle management and junior levels. New control systems are definitely above industry standards.

    Cons

    Requires more people with international development experience at the Executive level. Roger Ervin, the new CEO is dynamic and clean. But he needs to get more people who understands international development in his inner circle.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to some of your Senior staff who are competent and experienced in international development. Work on boosting morale of the employees. They have been through hell and back to help the organization and you succeed. While the real leaders have been promoted, work on the softer side of motivation. Engage them in policy making.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at International Relief and Development (Arlington, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I would say that 0verall process was smooth. It was easy to find the place. There was a standard set of questions and the testing. HR Manager was very helpful and well coordinating the process of hiring. The time was convenient for me. The person who was supposed to interview me came on time. She held a small talk to make me feel relaxed. The general atmosphere was pleasant.
