    Pros

    Great mission of innovating to save lives in low resources settings. Great staff and great reputation in the global health community

    Cons

    Fast pace, demanding and rapid growth. Real action is in the field offices so need to be comfortable with US-based home office support role.

    Advice to Management

    Continue current good efforts to strengthen the human resource function

    Pros

    Fantastic co-workers, I am passionate about our work, appreciate the capacity building approach, chance to travel and interact with staff in our field offices

    Cons

    Organization has grown very quickly and there are inefficiencies that have resulted; hard working intelligent staff make up for the organizational processes shortcomings; some reticence on behalf of management to compensate the staff time needed to establish and use quality assurance processes

    Advice to Management

    Stop growing and focus on quality in existing programs; also, the field offices need to see HQ as a resource rather than oversight

    Pros

    Great company overall. I've been pretty happy here for 3+ years. Unfortunately I think I have to fight for every raise and promotion (see Cons below), but I think there is a culture of learning and hard work to achieve great results.

    Cons

    The HR leadership is infuriating to deal with. Whether it's hiring new people to join our team, or negotiating raises, or even just planning events, I dread most interactions with HR. I think it stems from poor leadership, and 1-2 individuals at the top who are in cahoots and can get away with being negligent and sometimes downright rude. I suspect their poor negotiating skills have kept new talent from coming to Jhpiego, and has also caused people to leave the organization for other places.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at how HR is operating. There needs to be a stronger checks and balances system in place. How else can one expose instances of negligent
    Also we need to value the Program Coordinators and admin staff more. We would be nowhere without them.

    I worked at Jhpiego full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    incredible mission, lots of genuine smart people, awareness of international issues

    Cons

    Egotistical CEO, Poor HR support. Years ago HR was JHPIEGO focused. When our own HR person left things went down hill as JHU became more involved and finally took over. Integrity and care left and a bossy, slow bureaucracy took over.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the people who work and less about appearance
