    I have been working at Fair Trade USA full-time

    Pros

    Lots of really wonderful people; opportunity to go to origin and learn about industries is valuable

    Cons

    When push comes to shove, Fair Trade USA will always prioritize business demands over producer demands. There is an unwillingness to stand up for the principles of fair trade and the leadership is woefully under-equipped to push the organization to where it needs to be to drive impact.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure leadership to prioritize producer voice. Provide more clarity around principles and conflict of interest.


  2. "Communications"

    Cons

    I can't really think of many cons.
