Good people, mediocre organization

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Arlington, VA (US)

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

ProsOn an individual level, the company has many interesting, accomplished, and competent people. It also has a good benefits package, lots of vacation, and tends to be pretty accommodating of its employees life demands.

ConsThere is little attention paid to to lower- and mid-level employees. Technical work tends to stay only at the highest level, and doesn't give younger staff opportunities for professional growth. Also, there is a lack of transparency in how decisions are made about promotions and salaries. The pay differential between lower and high level staff is pretty substantial for an NGO.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove away from the "old boys club" mentality at the upper level of the organization, and start encouraging and rewarding growth and contributions at all levels of the organization.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
