- Unnecessary meetings at times for engineers... though they want to ensure we are looped in to what the company is up to and some of the meetings help you see the bigger picture - Timezone differences between coworkers/teammates can sometimes lead to syncing challengesCompassion International Response2mo

Compassion is a solid organization driven by their faith that is impacting children in positive ways around the world. They are also bringing in some excellent top level leaders recently.
Compassion needs a more thoughtful, well-researched corporate strategy that can align staff in a common direction. "More kids in less time" is not a great strategy.1Compassion International Response2mo

You will get a wide variety of experiences and there is certainly opportunity for some (white men, in particular) to rise within the ranks. Initially, you will get the intrinsic benefit of helping those living in poverty.
Over a short period of time, many new employees see ways in which the work can be streamlined, improved, and made more efficient and effective. These people are likely to be ignored and even chided for thinking that they can suggest opportunities for improving the manner in which poverty is overcome. There has been one particular marketing "expert" from the UK who knows everything and isn't willing to listen to others. He is smug, arrogant, ignorant, and condescending. As far as charities go, there are likely much better places to be employed.3Compassion International Response3mo
Thank you so much for your review and your 8+ years of service to Compassion’s ministry of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name. We are relentless in our efforts to learn, grow and improve. That’s an across-the-board philosophy for every part of our ministry, including our hiring processes. Compassion has talent acquisition representatives across the globe, who help us find the most diverse talent pool possible for every position. Our hiring philosophy has been and will continue to be: hire the best talent possible, offer pay and benefits that are competitive with other non-profits, be good stewards of all we have been entrusted with and honor Scripture that says a “worker deserves his wages.” We regret that you felt unheard. That can be frustrating. As you are aware, we have identified five Cultural Behaviors we want all staff to embrace. These include being here for a reason: the mission, serious about personal growth, 100% for one another, careful with our words and inviting others in. It is our expectation that as we consistently demonstrate these behaviors in our interactions, we all lay a strong foundation for the next generation of Compassion.

Christ Centered. The reason I came and the reason I stay. I love knowing children are having their physical needs met, being poured into through the churches that we partner with, and the heart that Compassion has to see them become thriving disciples of Jesus. The level of excellence people bring to this place and the opportunity to sharpen and work with brilliant people along with the fantastic and thoughtful benefits create an unparalleled experience as an employee. So clear God is working through this ministry! I am so fulfilled and challenged by the work and truly grateful that we GET to do this.
No organization is perfect, there are not significant enough cons worth calling out.Compassion International Response7mo
