    Pros

    Very bright and talented working level staff
    Lots of opportunity to work with very senior level officials
    interesting projects
    very flexible with time off
    good health care/vacation

    Cons

    severe lack of transparency in decision making - very "hot potato" mentality (i.e. I'm not the one who makes the decision, he is - no I'm not the one, she is, etc etc)
    senior management out of touch with working level
    attitude of senior management tends to be more, you should be happy to work for us as opposed to we are happy to have you here
    hierarchical

    Advice to Management

    invest in your working level staff and not place so much emphasis on having "big names" come in
    define standard operating policies for things such as pay grades, hiring, promotions etc.
    provide greater transparency on how decisions are made

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The ideal of working for Peace is a great one

    Cons

    Decision making is not transparent.
    Poor communication from management to employees and among employees
    Elitist atmosphere: some employees get invited to travel and others do not, with no clear critieria except that the President "has decided".
    Wheeler dealer mentality amon some senior staff;quite unprofessional
    There is always a crisis in funding, however, additional employees are brought in to the organization

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication
    Be less elitist
