    I have been working at Global Health Fellows Program II full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work closely with highly experienced USAID staff on a range of projects, learn about USAID processes, gain exposure to the donor side of global development, and network with a very strong cohort of interns. Great support from USAID staff as you begin you job search. Excellent benefits including PTO and health insurance.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to transition into full-time employment at USAID; career support from GHFP is nothing special

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate more networking

    I worked at Global Health Fellows Program II full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive staff, efficient systems. I felt they really cared about me and were interested in my professional development. But they did not make me choose between them and USAID. They supported my working with my team at USAID.

    Cons

    Have to leave after 4 years. In a way this is a relatively short term assignment. And when you switch to the next mechanism if you stay at USAID you have to deal with a much different experience of support.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what u r doing

    I worked at Global Health Fellows Program II full-time

    Pros

    GHFP was excellent. Great support for staff, great team, and paid as well as could be expected for a intern/fellowship program in development.

    Cons

    Can't think of much. It really was a great experience, and great way to become involved in the world of big donor/federal international aid.

    I have been working at Global Health Fellows Program II

    Pros

    This a good way to get a foot in the door at USAID, a generous professional development fund for each Fellow and good support from HR for logistical issues. Good benefits.

    Cons

    There are barriers in place that inhibit growth and fair wages. When starting, they only offer you a set percentage above your historical wage--an archaic and often unfair and highly gendered practice. When an employee asks for a pay range per position, HR states they will never share that with you. While the benefits are good, take-home pay should be an open and transparent process, but HR refuses to release data, and...

    Advice to Management

    Agree to publicly publish pay bands. Be open to valued employees negotiating pay.
