I worked at International Medical Corps part-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are many opportunities within the technical unit for professional development and learning about the different sectors, particularly strong in mental health

Cons

Due to the nature of humanitarian emergency response, there can be a high level of stress in the office, and among field staff.

Advice to Management

more open face to face communication between departments could cut back on unhealthy competition or miscommunications

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at International Medical Corps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work itself can be meaningful, even inspiring, and the field offices can actually be decent places to work. IMC is able to recruit (but not retain) fabulous talent, so you'll likely get the chance to work with some great folks.

    Cons

    The culture at IMC is fundamentally broken. Senior management is unfamiliar with basic best practices in engaging, motivating and retaining employees. There are no opportunities for advancement and there is no investment in staff development. The pay is well below market, and it is not unheard of for management to require employees to cover the cost of things like anti-malarials they require for trips to areas with malaria epidenimcs. If you are talented, innovative, bright and looking to work somewhere where you can receive support and career development, definitely seek employment elsewhere. IMC is the worst work environment I've ever encountered.

    Bringing self-sufficiency and assurance in the lives of individuals who were hopeless and helpless due to situational disaster.

    To remain creative with a sense of leadership at all times.
