Pros

Very good work human environment: respectful, enthusiastic, committed
Work worldwide
Work and staff in multiple sectors: health, education, social development, etc.

Cons

Field staff are "second class citizens" with no career tracks in the organization
Management leadership is weak, uncoordinated, not strategic
Systems are old fashioned and clunky: things work only because staff give 110%

Advice to Management

Organize as a single global organization, not two tiered
Focus on project management as the key skill
Differentiate project management from technical work

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Got to see how a my tax dollars are being wasted. Talented junior and mid-level staff do their time and move on.

    Cons

    As jr. and mid-level talent leave, poor performers advance to sr. mgt. No sr. mgt turnover unless retirement.

    Advice to Management

    None offered. they wouldn't listen anyway.
