    Former Employee - Kid Power Program Coordinator in Houston, TX

    I worked at UNICEF USA part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work for one of the best non-profits in the world and be apart of one of their summer programs. The program helps feed children all over the world while also promoting health and exercise for youth in the US.

    Cons

    It’s a remote position, so there is few interactions with actual students. It’s more of a administrative supportive role.

    Pros

    One of the best missions in the non-profit sector, good brand-name. Good organization to start your career, good way to enter UN organizations.

    Cons

    A consultant firm was hired to assess the weaknesses of the organization and one the findings were, that the organization only promotes white women, a member of senior management said to that effect that they should start promoting black men and discarding the possibility that women of color should be promoted. Women of color in the organization are stuck in the same position for years and are basically abused.... This creates a hostile work environment for new employees who want to give the organization a chance. Work-life balance it’s only possible if you are a white woman or a man, you can work from home and once in a while bring your infant or child; in contrast if a woman of color brings their child or children they will get a talking-to and the possibility of working from home is non-existent. If you are a woman of color and want to be promoted in the organization you cannot have children and if you do, you can forget about work-life balance, in addition be prepared to not only do your work but be visible to senior management; what do I mean with visible? You will have to be physically there by the time senior management arrives and leave after senior management leaves, they will not look at the quality of work you do, but more a smoke and mirrors game, it’s a game that some have already learned and even if they do nothing all day they are viewed as some integral part of the team. The treatment of women by some individuals it’s appalling, you can forget about reporting any incident to HR, they will tell you they already know, but they do nothing to correct it. What I can gather is that the incidents involved the same individuals but for some reason they aren’t willing to address them.

    Advice to Management

    They should follow the same mission they preach. They fundraise and advocate for the health and well-being of women and children from all over the world, but they cannot do the same for their employees. Instead of wasting donor’s dollars in direct-mail they should invest in a better donor database that integrates with all of the many systems they have and keep adding or vice-versa. Listen to their employees and... resolve issues that have been brought to their attention to avoid lawsuits.
