    I have been working at FHI 360 part-time

    Pros

    The team members and colleagues in other teams are really great. Team meetings are usually called to discuss the project progress and communicate the key ideas, pretty efficient. The location is good and you can enjoy the sky line view in the top layer.

    Cons

    The office is vacant for some weekdays, as some teams would home from home.

    I worked at FHI 360 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good opportunities to move up, with the right manager.

    Cons

    Stuck in certain positions because of process. CEO and COO are disconnected from the workforce of program and technical staff. Often times staff are overworked because of poor planning and under budgeting.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and COO need to be less focused on the shiny new thing and more focused on strengthening the existing money generating activities of the organization.

    I have been working at FHI 360 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In my 22 year career, I have worked for some pretty incredible organizations. However, none have offered a better work/life balance. It's also nice to be surrounded by people who want to work to make the world a better place and who want to improve lives for those who often don't have the means to do it on their own. We also have amazing benefits, including a 12% pension!

    Cons

    We don't offer tuition reimbursement. It's the one thing I feel like our benefits are lacking.
