    I worked at Unitus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly focused strategy on market led solutions to alleviate poverty in developing countries. Startup ethos. Established first commercial equity fund and investment bank for microfinance in India. Work with best social entrepreneurs. Great team that brings experience from venture capital, banking, and consulting. Ample opportunity for involvement on projects. International presence in India, South East Asia, East Africa, and Latin America.

    Cons

    Dedicated teams with a fast work pace result in long hours, especially over time zones. Extensive travel required to developing countries. Organization has pivoted several times, requiring structural changes.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    - Niche sector (investment banking for impact investing)
    - Small team
    - Market leader in the sector
    - Located in Bangalore

    Cons

    - Poor team dynamics
    - Poor employee benefits
    - Senior Management detached from the team
    - Impact investing space is under stress due to the ongoing Microfinance crisis

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to improve more effective role in Employee mentoring and grooming employees for larger roles. Senior management needs to be more aggressive in protecting mandates.
