      Pros

      Great culture and coworkers. Working hard to achieve mission.

      Cons

      It is a fast-paced environment, so you're always juggling many projects. That said, all projects are exciting!

      Overall great organization, very fulfilling

      Pros

      Ideas come from everywhere, colleagues are kind, salary is generous for a nonprofit, thoughtful management.

      Cons

      Being open for feedback from the entire staff can be overwhelming and inefficient sometimes. While some projects move quickly, others start, stop, start, stop, etc. Same everywhere I think.

      One of the Best Nonprofits

      Pros

      After having seen how other nonprofits work, I'm continually impressed by how well run GlobalGiving is. The team is not only dedicated (which is common), but is incredibly open to feedback, self-improvement, and is willing to tackle hard problems (which is uncommon). Unlike some nonprofits that are just trying to focus on making their major donors happy and to sweep things under the rug, GlobalGiving is committed to doing what's right for its beneficiaries (e.g. the projects) it's helping and doing what's right for the staff. No place is perfect, but GlobalGiving seems to be about as close as you can get.

      Cons

      Sometimes there are long hours and last-minute projects that pop up (basically like every job these days)

      Great Place to Work and Learn!

      Pros

      Welcoming, warm community. The staff is dedicated to helping fellows grow in their professional skills and offer many opportunities. You're not boxed in. The managers directly involved in the program are always open to suggestions and really want to see you grow.

      Cons

      Lines of professional and personal can cross sometimes. However, depending on the employee this may not be a bad thing. While at GlobalGiving, you're part of the family but the mission should never be forgotten. Very horizontal hierarchy which can be a good or bad thing.

      Disrupting development and philanthropy

      Pros

      GlobalGiving has an important mission, great workplace culture, and very flexible opportunities including the ability to work remotely. I also love that staff can participate in field travel and that staff who have spent years at the organization can take sabbaticals!

      Cons

      Our work is important to thousands of nonprofits so while the culture doesn't encourage behavior that results in burnout, some staff may be overworking themselves. It is rare for folks to retire or leave, especially when they can just work remotely, which means there aren't as many opportunities for promotion.
