    I have been working at IntraHealth International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice place to work.
    Central downtown DC location and Metro right across the street from the job

    Cons

    Driving to works is not ideal for this job

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being very supportive and understanding

    I worked at IntraHealth International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel or be apart of inspiring and rewarding work. Opportunity to build lifelong relationships.

    Cons

    The work practically owns your life. It's nearly impossible to leave work at the office and not have to respond to stay on top of emails after hours. I'm pretty certain this was the case for most everyone. There is not much job security as work is always dependent on winning contracts that last on average of 1-2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt proven and conventional methodologies for project management. It would be helpful for the entire organization to follow the same workflow and project management model, especially when it comes to IT projects. Bring in more people from outside the global public health industry to optimize organizational management.

    I have been working at IntraHealth International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Well-intentioned and talented staff, many of whom are demotivated by behaviors of executive team focused on conferences rather then the quality of programs. Staff become apathetic after time.

    Cons

    Out of touch leadership, especially the CEO. Other members of the executive team seem to be complacent - perhaps they want to keep their jobs and it is best not to rock the boat. Staff turnover is constant and high among top performers; yet senior management will not look at this closely to determine why and make needed changes.

    Advice to Management

    Need a new CEO to breathe life back into the organization.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fulfilling purpose, some staff are incredible to work with, strong and client/employee-centered IT dept.

    Cons

    Some staff are miserable to work with; a little too much political influence trickles down from primary funder; too much lip service with regards to suggested improvements from employees

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where you mouth is concerning employee career development; make significantly greater attempts to acquire funding from NON-governmental agencies, specifically large corporate donors; continue to improve corporate policies and the HR processes

    Pros

    Great respect for life/work balance, friendly people, and a really tangible commitment to making a difference in the lives of people in the countries in which IH works.

    Cons

    The organization has a lot of very senior people and a lot of junior ones - very few in the middle. It is very difficult to advance your career past the specialist/officer level. Competency in senior management varies widely, which directly affects whether you will be able to advance.

    Advice to Management

    There's a good deal of "dead wood" at IH, and everyone knows it. At the same time, the organization continues to lose a lot of great talent because there's just no where for them to go. IH should create viable paths for career advancement that don't involve leaving the organization.

    Pros

    Organization is mission-driven and people care about public health. Co-workers are respectful and positive. Managers seemed open to new ideas, and I felt like my voice was heard.

    Cons

    Actual impact of work was unclear; lots of effort spent trying to get the next grant (though this is true for many NGOs).

    Pros

    Great place to work and build experience ,especially for recent grads. Mission driven and dedicated to changing lives in developing countries

    Cons

    Constrained by a limited scope of technical areas and expertise. This is hampering growth and expansion in an increasingly competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks and change with the industry. Expand beyond core technical areas and adapt to a changing industry.
