Pros

Important, inspiring, innovative vision and approach. Most of the people are top-notch and care deeply about their work. Great benefits and work flexibility.

Cons

Behavior that is counter to ON's core values is tolerated and big people issues are ignored by the leadership year after year.

Advice to Management

I wish I could have worked at ON for a very long time because of the mission, vision, impact and innovation. Take a hard look at the second level leadership in the US. It isn't what you think it is

    I worked at Omidyar Network as a contractor

    Pros

    Strong mission-driven culture; everyone there dedicated to the mission. Its an opportunity to be on the front line of impact investing and international development, which provides a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. In addition to being dedicated to the mission, your colleagues are smart and driven.

    Cons

    The organization is top heavy. Almost all junior staff has a masters degree. While people are driven, there sometimes lacks the energy that comes with having more young people in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better career path for your highly qualified, hard-working junior staff to succeed. This starts with empowering everyone to participate in strategic decision making.

    - Over time, processes have been put in place, but still some way to go. Sometimes ambiguity can work to your disadvantage.
    - Key management is ebay/paypal or HBS clique and favor the same.

    Recognising and rewarding talent is key to retaining the best!
