The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF's unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
These things are not just “nice to have”. . . they are “need to haves.” They are the things that make it possible for us to live. And so, to ensure our very survival, they must be kept safe.
It’s a big job. And no one person or organization can do it alone.
WWF-US is part of the WWF global network which has worked for more than 50 years to protect the future of nature. In 2016, WWF embraced a bold new strategy and transformation designed to make the organization stronger and even more effective in tackling the challenges ahead. In this video, Marco Lambertini, Director General, WWF International, talks about WWF’s new way of working and commitment to conservation results.

I worked at World Wildlife Fund full-time (More than 3 years)
Your co-workers will be very intelligent and accomplished, but some can be a bit snobby/hard to know. There are also some great people though! You feel like you're part of a higher cause.
The lunch brown bags are very interesting and help you know some of the great programs you are supporting. The office is gorgeous, great location in DC, and very neatly decorated with animals etc. Plus it's a green building.
There can be a lot of politics where those who suck up get ahead first. It's pretty difficult to change departments.
Advice to Management
The restructuring where people were laid off in 2013 and then just brought back on was very confusing and poorly handled. The process was talked about so much, including buzzwords of transparency, but it didn't seem to happen that way and I"m not sure what has really changed in the end in terms of efficiency.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Wildlife Fund.
I applied online on their website and got an email from HR the same day. After the HR interview, which lasted 45 minutes, I was selected a week later for a technical interview with an executive in WWF. I am not certain where it went wrong, but they did not select me for the following round(s) and I was rejected. The technical interview lasted exactly 30 minutes. Hopefully this review will be of help to others who apply for this position since I was not sure about it and Glassdoor wasn't of much use in preparation.
