Pros

Intelligent, driven colleagues. Horizontal organization. Senior management works well as a team. I am able to channel my energy toward that about which I have great passion. Very competitive compensation for non-profit.

Cons

Small company that takes chances. Risk, uncertainty. Not for faint of heart.

Advice to Management

Merge with another firm in same area. Need to grow to have more stable revenue stream.

    Pros

    Rare opportunity to truly make a difference. Pro-poor agenda. Goes beyond merely contributing timely quantitative policy research to actually developing solutions to development challenges. Good model for the citizen sector--combines double bottom line for profit with non-profit. Horizontal organization, everyone has a voice. Impressive results. Big brand for small organization.

    Cons

    In current environment, must expend considerable staff time on development. Understaffed given scope of mission. Workload is brutal for non-profit.

    Advice to Management

    Make more use of Board of Advisors and President's Council. Need to network with those who have more access. Diversify supporter base and push agenda more aggressively.
