      Pros

      Wonderful organization full of impact-oriented, hard-working, business-minded women and men.

      Cons

      TechnoServe’s culture of walking the walk means that they are not as well known as some other employers. Still great to have on your CV.

      The work and impact is amazing. Lots of great people.

      Good work/life balance and job security

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company has been performing very well, despite the pandemic. Competitive salary compared to others in industry

      Cons

      Very corporate work environment even though it is a non-profit. Very business-focused. Disconnect between each country office- no effort made by SMT or HR to connect staff from different offices, despite working together over emails. Few opportunities for those not wanting business admin or development role.

      Do NOT recommend working here.

      Pros

      Wonderful supportive colleagues, but many have left due to one particular senior manager.

      Cons

      I can’t speak for the entire organization, but one of the VPs that I worked with at HQ is extremely toxic, unethical, and filled with fear, which made for a difficult and unsettling work environment.
