    Pros

    IUCN is a very huge network and is recognized globally as a very credible organization. It is extremely good learning platform and provides immense exposure to young and mid-carrier professionals

    Cons

    It is being very badly managed due to self-centered senior managers and also those having vested interests. Due to limited structure, the organization has now growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Improve management, get ride of selfish managers and strategically focus on market trends
