    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at UNICEF USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The mission and the benefits. - Great mission and meeting some truly amazing people.

    Cons

    - Heavy white and privileged culture - Very top heavy and bureaucratic organization, condescending work culture - No direction, competing priorities - You must play the game - Regional offices often get little to no support - Competitive and stepping on people to get ahead - Salary and benefits below industry standards - Backbiting and unprofessional at times - A lot of lipservice

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and honest with your employees. Stop wasting donors dollars. Practice what you preach.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at UNICEF USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The mission is awesome and some extremely talented people work here

    Cons

    Extremely bureacratic and territorial place to work. Collaborative projects tend to fail. There is a culture of mistrust, paranoia and fear. Great employees become buned out and the turnover is so high, you keep finding yourself adjusting to priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking accountability for the lack of progress; most issues are all coming from the top. Reward the hard working, results-oriented employees and agree to strategies that create trust and fairness throughout the organization.
