    I worked at Freedom House full-time

    Pros

    When done well, the work helps to extend the reach and impact of human rights advocates, especially those operating under duress. It can be inspiring and the international posts are an education unto themselves.

    Cons

    The field staff are sometimes regarded as fungible, and rarely included as part of the intellectual capital of the institution. What is a great opportunity for a recent US college grad can be a disrespectful and humiliating necessity for a seasoned activist in a project country. Much of this relates to management attitudes and styles.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the CEO is passionate about program/project work.
