Amazing people, brilliant work, and healthy work-life balance
Typical non-profit stuff where you can get pulled into too many projects. But there is a good culture of self-advocacy for balance

No doubt, IJM has a fantastic mission - helping to protect the world's most vulnerable people from criminal exploitation. This is what drew me (and most IJM'ers) to the organization, and we are happy to contribute to this excellent cause. - Worthwhile mission with meaningful work that is actually making a difference in the world - Many quality people to work with who genuinely want to do the right thing - Numerous opportunities for personal spiritual growth - Progressive benefits for the size of the organization
Unfortunately, the execution of the mission is made far more difficult than necessary by poor resource management. Senior leadership has set a very aggressive growth target, but yet does not fully comprehend how to organize, resource, and run a large enterprise. - The org has neglected the Shared Services teams for most of its existence and is suddenly realizing the mistake. But 15+ years of neglect cannot be rectified in <3 years without chaos ensuing. Sustainable change always takes longer than hoped. - Shared Services teams are severely understaffed and cannot keep up with organizational growth. This leads to exhaustion, burnout, and turnover of employees and roadblocking of organizational needs. - Recent revenue issues have had severe negative impacts to projects, hiring, and career advancement.

Shared mission across organization and great vision
Tough to navigate siloed business culture to achieve goals and make necessary improvements.

Amazing coworkers & deep care for employee experiences/work-life balance. The organization keeps the mission front & center of their work.
Limited opportunities and slow progress. As with most nonprofits, they have limited resources, but they are not managed well.

The work they do in the field as a nonprofit is incredible and unmatched. I will always support the mission. The people you get to work with will be some of the best you have ever met.
Middle-manager leaders make working there unbearable. Blatant misconduct is swept under the rug. I directly experienced sexism and manipulation from leaders here with no repercussions. Employees are burned out, disenfranchised, and leaving in droves.1

Pretty Decent Benefits Great mission
Very hierarchical, while many say they want to empower your role, practically, they do not. This means too much micromanaging to the highest level, sadly. If you are in a second career, and like the mission, take a look- but if you are just starting out- suggest looking elsewhere so you are not stifled.

The work IJM does is nothing short of amazing.
Significant amounts of change can cause a lot of uncertainty and disruption.
- 3.0Apr 17, 2023AssociateFormer Employee, more than 1 year
Most of the organization is focused on accomplishing the mission. Good work-life balance. Important work being done. Good benefits overall, although some have been cut due to budgeting issues.
Lack of clarity from senior/executive leadership around the direction of the organization, leading to uncertainty and a lack of trust. Depending on which team you are on, it can be easy to feel like an outsider who has little to offer. Low pay for being based in the nation's capital with high cost of living.

mid size so lots of roles that are carrying varied responsibilities
