    Pros

    Mercy Corps strives to constantly improve and expand its impact. Management tries to do the right thing by all of the many diverse constituents. You will be challenged and asked to think outside the norm.

    Cons

    The pace of change can sometimes be hard to keep up with, particularly when balancing the difficult job of moving programs forward in very difficult environments.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on mission and people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercy Corps (Portland, OR) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The Interview process was pretty simple - I had an initial phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes and then an in person meeting that was more like a conversation and an offer at the end.
