    I have been working at Center for Advanced Research in Engineering (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart staff; good mission; global reach and reputation. If you can accomplish something within CARE, it has a wide reach (70 countries or so). CARE can have major influence as a well-respected actor. The employees are generally extremely educated and competent at the international level.

    Cons

    Constant strategic reviews; not strong directional leadership; cumbersome operating model that adds too much in the way of costs. There are aspirations to be more nimble and support social movements, but this is unlikely to happen while the organization is set up to deliver on traditional development projects. The staff in some country offices, while generally competent people, do not necessarily have skill sets that line up well with the way CARE now aspires to work: learning, advocacy, social movements.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forceful in defining a vision to accomplish the mission and then give the leeway for staff to get there. The country office operating model has to go in the long run. It's too expensive and slows everything down.

    I worked at Center for Advanced Research in Engineering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is very open and very friendly. The managers respect the engineers and once you establish your trust, your opinions have weight.

    No one will be breathing down your neck because all higher management has studied from the States and were researchers themselves. They know stuff doesn't get made overnight. So they won't fire you for a missed deadline. As long as you were working honestly

    Cons

    There is no career path. You will never make it to management and you will never be given stock options in the company. You can not get the benefits you expect working for a big company. So it's a good place to work temporarily. You can't live with the company your whole life.

    Advice to Management

    Should change their HRM policies.


  10. "You're overworked here"

    Pros

    Great experience. You get to work with technology's front lines and develop some cut-throat stuff.

    Cons

    You're overworked to the core. And there are no benefits for working overtime. Salaries aren't the best either.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the management should look more into employee satisfaction. These guys lose many people who find other jobs elsewhere with better pays.
