Pros

You do meaningful work, you are connected to people all over the world, you are making a difference for a real problem

Colorado Springs is not my favorite city to live in- it is spread out and does not have a ton of opportunities for young people

    I have been working at Compassion International full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, the ministry truly helps children in poverty. I believe in the difference Compassion makes around the world. It's the internal workings that take away the desire to work here.

    Cons

    CEO insists on clinging to his failed leadership structure. Since he has taken over, we have laid off more than 50 people, lost an entire country, have the highest cancellation rate in the history of the organization, launched a technology infrastructure that is failing miserably (it came with a NINE-FIGURE PRICE TAG!) And our completely out-of-touch CEO hosted an ice cream party to deem it a success.
    If you are looking for a career with an opportunity for advancement, this is the last place I would recommend. Those in power continue elbowing for more. There is NO opportunity for advancement at Compassion. It does not matter what kind of leadership experience or skills you have, they are not interested in that.

    Advice to Management

    It's time for a re-do at the top. It's time to admit you have the wrong people in place. And it's time to admit your mistakes. Quit trying to gloss over everything like we're doing well. We are not.
