    A little interest for formal training of its employees.

    I worked at World Neighbors International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    the holistic approach in programs is positive
    Good Environment
    Flexi time and gives time for good work life balance

    Cons

    Retrenching employees haphazardly due to budget constraints need to be improved
    managers writing bad recommendations because staff have left yet the same ones gave excellent reviews when staff were working.
    one person manning a whole region with the free will to do what he wants is a negative - where does the buck stop.
    no growth opportunities
    compesation is not commensurate to work

    Advice to Management

    Reorganise. Restrategise.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at World Neighbors International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fellow colleagues are passionate about the mission of this organization

    Cons

    Final CEO may have been a fit when first hired when funding was consistent. Over time, funding dwindled and CEO still spent significant amount of funds on departments that were not essential to the the mission of the organization (significant portion of budget was allocated to department dedicated to creating a brand for the organization. It would have made more sense for those significant funds to be spent on fundraising efforts).

    Unfortunately, this non profit eventually went bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    This is really advice to a non profit board:

    Take responsibility seriously and don't back down to strong opinions. If CEO isn't producing, make the difficult decision to consider other candidates.
