    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IFRC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Incredible mission and sense of accomplishment. Opportunities to feel good and grow every day. Each day is different. Good people on the front lines.

    Cons

    Major financial difficulties beget an environment where performance against metrics outweighs strong mission-based outcomes. Has led to a culture rich in poor leadership, ego and fear. Turnover is high and senior leaders are perceived as disconnected and transparently uncaring. Not terribly sustainable in its present condition.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, and they'll take care of the rest.
