    I worked at Freedom House full-time for more than a year


    Not many to speak of. The work is pretty standard for any DC based human rights NGO, but organizationally there's still a lot that needs sorting.


    During my time, management was very complacent. There were several higher-ups who contributed little and knew even less. The new president and budget issues ushered in a bit of a spring cleaning of upper management, which was much needed. They almost never promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Refine the structure and goals. Don't try to bid for every contract at once. There needs to be a clear vision of what Freedom House does, and then do it well.
