    Pros

    - Due to a chaotic administrative structure, there are great opportunities to learn about development work from the ground up.
    - Junior staff are given expanded responsibility versus other similar institutions.
    - Good work atmosphere with friendly, committed people.
    - ABA ROLI is one of the few institutions in the world that does international rule of law or legal capacity building programs.

    Cons

    - Insufficient focus on professional development of staff.
    - Limited institutional efforts to share knowledge about programs, successes, etc.
    - Institution is not administratively set up for international development work and does not have the planning capacity to effectively address this.

    Advice to Management

    - More attention should be paid to how the institution is structured, rather than trying to address individual issues ad-hoc.
