    great organization

    May 9, 2022 - Senior Manager in Boston, MA

    Pros

    it is amazing to work for an organization that aligns with your vision of the world, to have colleagues that believe in the same as you, fight for injustice in the work and... become additional family members!

    Cons

    salaries as low for the amount of work and passion that everyone puts in. many people had to leave the organization when they started a family, as there was no possibility of growing. If you have no debt, and come from a relatively wealthy family, then you can afford to work for your dream job.

    Pros

    Everyone is passionate about the mission oriented work, which is fantastic.

    Cons

    High stress + very little room for internal growth. Can be elitist in their hiring practices, you're not likely to get a permanent position without a Masters degree and 5+ years of experience

    Pros

    Oxfam as a whole is a great non profit. Co-workers are very supportive.

    Cons

    Throwing yourself at people to get them to sign up, very sales based. No real way to move up in the company.
