The people who work at FHI 360 are driven, willing to teach, kind, and genuine human beings. This is a perfect entry place for anyone looking for experience with a large global health and development organization. Interns, depending on the team, are able to take on projects outside of their teams and gain exposure to a multitude of topics. There are plenty of presentations to attend that feature global health and development experts working outside of FHI 360. You will come away from this internship with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and professional contacts. There is a lot of room to explore various areas of interest and even discover new areas of interest. I felt highly valued by my team and by people beyond my team. FHI 360 has a global mentoring program that is open to anyone, so I highly recommend taking part in that as an intern.
I joined this position after completing my Masters, and I did feel that the compensation was quite low for someone working full-time. It is a trade-off between the learning opportunities available and how much you are willing to give up financially for those opportunities.

Fhi360 is well known for its Technical expertise
Job opportunities are mostly tied to projects with period of performance so always comes to an end

Rewarding and interesting work. I had the opportunity to work on one project and see it through to completion.
There wasnt enough work for me to. Also, there was little face time between me and my supervisor1

A lot of opportunities to learn everything from field experience to paper work to managing people
You are not exactly sure what your job description is. So much time is wasted on meetings. Pay is awful

People in the ranks and in the field are wonderful, though many super talented staff continue to leave. Benefits are great. In some people there are remnants of the heart and soul of the previous companies.
Almost everything about executive management and internal processes remain a huge mess after 3 years of merger. Siemens leaving can only be a good thing (FINALLY!) but he will still be around somehow. His special minions in high and medium management also need to go. HR is the worst. There is little hope for the medium and long term. They keep talking about adapting to a new environment but it is run like an old mom and pop store. Upper level incompetence is shocking yet rewarded. Read the other negative posts here. They are right! The only new restructuring needed is to get rid of most of the executive management. Such squandered resources and opportunities! Most people in both Durham and DC unhappy...still!5

The general work mission and projects, and the benefits
Work culture is very cold and quiet. Underpay is a problem for entry level and opportunities for growth are minimal

There is ample opportunity for learning and re-learning from the competent and experienced staff at the country office.
The country office's mostly unsupervised style of administration of the various state teams by respective State Team Leads frequently led to abuse by some of these Team Leads thereby creating very toxic working situations in such state offices.
