I have been working at National Endowment for Democracy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A very casual and friendly workplace. If on the right team, staff has a lot of freedom to work. It is a well respected organization with regional staff accepted as experts in their fields.

Cons

A big part of this is being a non-profit, but even so they are cheap. Benefits and salaries at comparable organizations are much better.

    Pros

    A community of committed people who want to promote democracy and human rights across the world.

    Cons

    I would not call it a big disadvantage but some folks who have remained affiliated with NED as fellows find it hard to readjust in their home countries where they are unfairly billed as "American agents" when they return to their home countries after completing their fellowships in America.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I enjoy NED events, holiday parties etc.


  2. "Friendly colleagues, but little upward mobility"

    Pros

    Program officers across regional teams are encouraged to talk about common challenges for supporting and communicating with grantees.

    Cons

    Salaries not keeping up with cost of living in D.C.; takes too long to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries, ensure program officers and assistant program officers have opportunity for promotion within first three years of employment.
