Great mission, great people. Opportunity is a very visionary organization that is always seeking to improve the work they do.

Not clear path for professional growth within the organization. HQ office tends to lack technical expertise and doesn't attract top leaders in the field of economic development.

    I worked at Opportunity International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great long term staff (those that are still around), wonderful work overseas, strong Christian focus in many of the field offices; strong volunteer leadership at the board level.

    Cons

    New CEO tried to do too much to fast and change the culture drastically; monumental mistakes occurred in many areas at her direction. New leaders bullied a lot of good people.
    Blew a lot of money out of the gates and then fired a bunch of people because there was no money left. Upper management pretends to be Christian and aren't to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late for that. They don't listen.
