    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Human Rights First full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great mission, very focused and strategic, smart colleagues, fast paced, driven, pragmatic, great benefits package

    Cons

    communication can be frustrating, mid to lower level staff can feel under-valued, unclear decision making processes

    Advice to Management

    engaging staff more regularly in decision-making processes may help them feel more valued and less caught off guard in the event of significant organizational changes. this may also help to create a better environment of trust and collaboration. the mission and strategy -- and the niche -- that Human Rights First has carved out for itself in recent years is commendable and impressive. keep up the great work!

    I worked at Human Rights First as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Great group of people working there
    Meaningful work
    Ability to really make a difference in clients' lives and see the results

    Cons

    Since this is a non-profit organization, employees often work long hours and are not paid as much as they should be for the great work that they do. There are also too many unpaid interns, perhaps for the same reason.

    Advice to Management

    Improve continuity, training, and professional development by reducing the number of unpaid internship positions and increasing the amount of full-time staff positions.
