    Negative Outlook

    I worked at British Council full-time

    Pros

    * Brand name NGO * Nice office location and facilities * You can take unpaid "career leave" with a guaranteed job if you come back afterwards...but most of those I knew who took it ended up not coming back!

    Cons

    * Low pay, even for non-profit * Toxic work environment * Inflexible bureaucracy * Bickering and aggressive competition between different offices * They require recommendation from your current employer before they can give you a formal job offer (i.e. forget about a discreet job search!!) * Lack of opportunity to advance * Despite large office, not a great support network . Communication between different project...

    Advice to Management

    If you say that you care about the employees, you have to mean it and prove it. Empty talk is diplomatic but doesn't mean a thing.
