    I worked at Mercy Corps full-time (More than a year)


    + Great work environment. Everyone is very smart (especially technical experts) and focused on getting results. It's easy to rely on your teammates. + Good experience in an agency with a broad range of activities + Work gets results. You're really making a difference + Great benefits + Innovative solutions - at the front line of developing new solutions for how to work in complex states. It's very exciting to be in an environment looking for the answers. Good focus on agency-wide learning + Respectful of vacation time and leave


    Not many. Hard to find promotion opportunities at the lower level - the organization is very focused on open positions, so there tends to be movement in and out as people wait for an appropriate role.

    Advice to Management

    Build out professional development/career advancement opportunities for lower and middle-level staff (not just country directors), so they don't feel replaceable and expendable. Continue to improve transparency in decision-making. And keep up with the great Mercy Corps culture!
