    "Fascinating place, challenging work"

    I worked at Ecpat International

    Pros

    Interesting work for a very good cause. Opportunity to do work all over the globe. Ambitious organization with strong leader.

    Cons

    Overworked, understaffed secretariat Last minute deadlines and tight budgets for consulting projects are common Communication between Bangkok-based secretariat and far-flung consultants and partners can be challenging. Things can change on a project without everyone being aware.

    I worked at Ecpat International full-time

    Pros

    The researchers are all deeply dedicated, nice, smart people to work with.

    Cons

    The administration I was under was struggling and the majority of the staff (senior staff) quit either while I was there or soon after.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ecpat International

    Pros

    I have been able to work on a few interesting projects. Majority of member groups are doing interesting work and there are opportunities to support this.

    Cons

    Very chaotic and confusing office. The majority of longer term staff seem to exist in a bubble where ECPAT is somehow the most relevant (or only) organization working on this topic. This could account for some of the funding challenges. Management treats funding applications like a competition, often trying to undermine or mimic what other INGOs are already doing, rather than responsible and thoughtful consideration... of ways it can contribute. The reality is that it lacks capacity, knowledge and management to do much of anything.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say that hasn't been said by staff already. Requires intervention by the Board.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ecpat International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice and friendly co-workers, decent salary. Mission is positive.

    Cons

    Ineffective org. Work goes nowhere. Millions are spent on travel/meetings with little or no results. Smart people are hired and become frustrated with management/lack of results and leave. Those motivated by helping children will not last here. Those who want a pay check only may be satisfied. Used to be a leader but no longer, has been surpassed by other org. doing similar (and more effective) work.

    Advice to Management

    Management courses are desperately needed. There is no management here.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Ecpat International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    worthy cause, unfortunately dubious management and financial practices

    Cons

    chaotic strategy, poor human resources management, senior staff uninterested in personnel development. Executive Director changed multiple times due to internal chaos, dubious financial practices.

    Advice to Management

    stop lying to your donors
