Mid-level and junior staff not given a chance to do technical work

Arlington, VA (US)

I have been working at Management Sciences for Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMSH's DC office is in a good location, ability to work with field staff has been a good experience, I've learned a lot from senior staff (but haven't been allowed to practice it).

ConsMany of the administrative/program coordinator level staff wind up leaving after 1 year since there is no movement up unless you have a masters, ditto for Progam Officers/Associates. Often much of the "technical" work is only done by the older staff who have been at MSH for 10-15 years. There isn't a desire across the centers/projects to train junior staff, and this causes many of us to want to leave.

The mission is great, and means well. However, in practice, it's the worst organization at implementing.

Pros: Fair amount of vacation days. However, this includes days that are floating holidays… Cons: For an organization that preaches leadership and development, they sure do a terrible job of it. Senior managers that many do not respect are permitted… Advice to Senior Management: people do not always approve of senior management at the director to C-level but are afraid toi truthfully express their concerns.
