    Pros

    It is a great organization that is firm in its mission and full of good people. They work hard to find you an assignment that suits your skills and matches your availability.

    Cons

    Communication is often lacking, the pay is quite bad (especially for the first twelve months that you or on assignment in the field), and there is a lot of political nonsense between the five main European offices.

    Advice to Management

    Don't worry quite so much about keeping expats with the same OC they have previously deployed with; most just want to get out there and work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Médecins Sans Frontières (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    About a month after I submitted the application, I was emailed & asked to come into the office for an interview. I was interviewed by two people simultaneously for about an hour. Very standard questions about my experience and relevant skills. The people interviewing me were friendly. I was then emailed to be told I made it to the next round and was given a writing assignment I had 2 days to complete.
