      I worked at The Challenge full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The office environment is fun, inclusive and laid back. My colleagues quickly became my some of my best friends. Everyone in the office is young, lively and passionate about the cause.

      Cons

      The work is incredibly dull and low level employees are actively discouraged from thinking outside of the box. There is a very rigid hierarchy which is particularly frustrating given the lack of experience in management and the disorganisation of the charity. There is a huge culture of feedback, but this feedback often has little to do with professional development/the job and comes from managers who are not well trained...

      Advice to Management

      The Challenge has a reputation of being horrifically disorganised and this is perpetuated by your silencing of lower level staff and hiring management based upon their experience in the organisation rather than their experience full stop. You need to hire more externally experienced managers and listen to your staff working tirelessly on the ground.
