    I worked at Results for Development Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for early career growth (ideal for recent graduates eager for field and professional experience); dynamic projects with diverse funders and clients; opportunities to work in different fields and to gain expertise; extremely attractive benefit package despite non-profit salary; flexible working hours; supportive and friendly colleagues; good IT support (good work laptops); well-maintained office in DC; strong HR department; very professional Communications department

    Cons

    Changes in policies tend not to involve input from across the organization; lack of transparency with respect to some systems and policies; limited starting salary for Program Associates; minimal travel assistance when traveling for work; occasional challenges infrastructure (e.g. conference call platforms, projection and screen sharing for teleconferences); mid-level management (Program Officers and Senior Program Officers) tend to bear a lot of responsibility and stress.

    Advice to Management

    Promote transparency in decision making; restructure Operations, Procurement, and IT; hire a Chief Operations Officer; adopt a more project-centric view toward operations support; increase diversity of senior and mid-level management; provide greater support and integration of overseas teams.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Results for Development Institute (Washington, DC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    questions were based on my experience. Luckily, the position wanted someone who had less then 2 years and looking to gain more knowledge, Because they were looking for someone who understood technology, it was based on mostly that.
