I have been working at Oxfam full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Oxfam GB is a globally renowned aid and development charity with 70 years of experience, working and campaigning with partners in 98 countries worldwide

Cons

Oxfam GB is really bureaucratic and hierarchical which means it is hard to get the organization to move when you need it to and takes a long time to figure out how to steer the Titanic. however, I have to admit the bureaucracy was mostly built out of good intention and the hierarchy tries to connect the ground to HQ with major decision making.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Oxfam as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, diverse team of people, races, cultures & religions. There is a good chance of promotion and international exposure if you are good at your job.

    Cons

    Short term employment contracts due to limited funding. When funding expires, the possibility of contract renewal is less that 10%

    Advice to Management

    Identify talented people who come into the organisation and hold on to them. Its always easy to let someone go but consider the time you took capacity building a person only for them to leave and use that training in another organisation


  2. "bad experience of first job."

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Oxfam as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    salary was good and on time.

    Cons

    only target oriented, no rules n policies, unorganized, nothing is pre-planned.

    Advice to Management

    make some policies, share a rule-book with your employees, treat all your employees eqal so that nobody will feel inferior. City Head must be a good leader not only a good fundraiser.
