Pros

Very flexible; great opportunities for advancement; respects field office input. Has a broad range of competencies, which means that many kinds of projects are fair game.

Cons

IRD is a young company and is experiencing growing pains. It is important that the company find people with deep experience and new ideas so that the growth pattern can be sustained.

Advice to Management

Need to shed some former employees who are no longer producing results. It is important that IRD build on its past rather than be captured and enslaved by it.

    I worked at International Relief and Development full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    IRD sued USAID and won. New management removed quite a bit of deadwood. Leaner org, new name in the works, revenue is up, teams are starting to step up and take reigns of the transition well. An amazing concentration of talented and hardworking people at Senior, middle management and junior levels. New control systems are definitely above industry standards.

    Cons

    Requires more people with international development experience at the Executive level. Roger Ervin, the new CEO is dynamic and clean. But he needs to get more people who understands international development in his inner circle.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to some of your Senior staff who are competent and experienced in international development. Work on boosting morale of the employees. They have been through hell and back to help the organization and you succeed. While the real leaders have been promoted, work on the softer side of motivation. Engage them in policy making.
