    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get the chance to really help people. Great vacation and benefits package. IRC is a leader among other resettlement volags. If you're going to work in refugee resettlement IRC is definitely the best one to work for. Some of the field staff are fantastic people to work with.

    Cons

    There is a major disconnect between the field staff and the headquarters. New initiatives are typically ignored unless you make them successful. IRC cares so deeply about branding and marketing it feels the core values are forgotten some times. It's difficult to transfer from US Programs to International Programs.

    Advice to Management

    Connect headquarters with field. Pay more attention to US Programs. Stop sending HQ people to criticize the field and actually see how they can help the field.


  2. "good place to work"
