Approves of CEO

Pros

Paid internships! Youll meet tons of interesting people. Travel is great.

Cons

All the work of a full time person (including the hours!) but none of the trust. Opportunities for advancement present, but elusive. At the end of the day, youll still go home and have to make easy mac for dinner, because this salary isnt paying the bills!

Advice to Management

Help your people grow, dont treat interns and project assistants like slaves doing repetitive, non-important tasks.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on international issues that are making a difference in people's lives around the world. Smart people with an array of international experience from election monitoring to Peace Corps to graduate study field work.

    Cons

    Low pay. Bureaucratic red tape to finesse when trying to accomplish small tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Foster opportunities for people outside of the traditional international development route to join NDI. It's very tough to get hired at NDI without a Masters degree but with the reality of today's economy, it may be the case that more young people may put off getting a graduate degree with school being so expensive. Their experiences living abroad, however, may be more suited for NDI work than anything learned in a classroom.
