    I worked at Freedom House

    Pros

    There's great work going on at FH and staff are extremely knowledgeable/qualified in their respective fields. Most people around you are really driven by the mission.

    Cons

    The new President, Mark Lagon, is absolutely horrendous. Terrible leader, blatantly self-promoting, arrogant, and cares more about his title than the mission. His strategic planning process seemed to be "for-show" and I suspect that he will pursue his own ideas and ignore others. I left before I could find out. Run away. This place is plummeting towards the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Don't instigate internal politics. Learn to lead the organization.
