      Pros

      I would highly recommend working at World Vision USA. They genuinely care about their employees and encourage personal and professional health and growth.

      Cons

      There are always areas in an organization that need improvement, because people make up an organization. But overall, the issues are minuscule compared to benefits of working here.

      Pros

      pay can be competitive w/ market

      Cons

      Awful Management Discriminatory Practices Have to fight for earned raises & promotions Does not value employees Leaders not held accountable Empty promises from HR (re: leaders targeting and discriminating against employees) I worked in a certain department for over 10 years. During that time, the amount of complaints HR received about certain leaders abusing their power and targeting & discriminating against employees was astronomical. When I was targeted myself, HR promised to protect and mediate, but refused to even mediate a meeting between me and said leader. Upon my termination, i was promised an investigation into the matter. No such investigation happened (I still maintain contact w/ those i worked with). This has by far been the worst employment experience i’ve ever had and no amount of money is worth it

      Great Mission, Toxic Workplace

      Pros

      Mission and field work is inspiring. Amazing people work here.

      Cons

      CEO is an "expert" on everything and does not allow true subject-matter experts to speak into processes or business decisions. Leadership lies constantly-- saying one thing, but doing and meaning something else. CEO and Senior leaders constantly use their faith/religious behavior as weapons in business meetings. Many Senior leaders are out of touch with reality and current business practices. CEO should be casting vision and breaking down barriers, not micromanaging his department leaders. Work follows you home. Work/Life Balance does not exist. Stress levels are high.

      Career advancement limited (despite stating that they "value people")

      Pros

      Meaningful work. Opportunity to make a difference globally and domestically. Good coworkers.

      Cons

      Nepotism rampant. Tenure not valued. Limited opportunities to advance despite what leadership says. Senior leadership is out of touch and Board of Directors are so far removed from those who actually are close to the work.

      Pros

      The mission is urgent and compelling - you know you are truly making a difference every day! The Christian identity of the organization provides a place where you can grow spiritually. Some of the best and most devoted colleagues to work alongside.

      Cons

      Like many large organizations, it can be heavy with bureaucracy and slow to change at times. To their credit, the Sr. Leadership team does recognize this and is trying to fuel innovation more quickly.
