    I have been working at IUCN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Very flat structure. Senior management is approachable
    - Change process has been very transparent
    - Mission is very strong. Employees truly believe in the mission
    - Hard work leads to success
    - HQ and regions work very closely and cordially as compared to many big international organizations
    - Compensation is fair but there is always room for improvement
    - Flexibility to staff on their work schedules
    - Corporates functions work well with each other

    Cons

    - General benefits (pension and insurances) can be more standardized across all locations

    Advice to Management

    - Could move from old fashioned nature conservation to modern methods. This would need a turnover at the senior management level
    - Improve branding of the organization. Currently seems to be the "best kept secret"

    Pros

    Strong partnerships and meaningful work with policy level impact, diverse individual interests and action that can enhance cross-sectoral approach

    Cons

    Little effort for large scale on-the-ground implementation toward targeted results, with little M&E for impact; no strength to grievance mechanisms and options for reducing hierarchy and institutionalized leadership team management.
