Featured Review

Former Intern - Research Intern

I worked at British Red Cross

Pros

Emphasis on training and development

Cons

Limited opportunities to convert internship into paid position

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Relief International full-time for more than a year

Pros

Opportunity for a lot of visits to the field. My area at the time was non existent so I had the opportunity to develop it from the ground up.

Cons

At the time I worked at RI it was completely centralised with the CEO who would undermine managers and issue directives to anyone he wished. Terrible management, Country Directors had little control... over strategic decisions and budgets, exploitative programmes (beaded bracelets and necklaces made by IDPs in Palestine and Sudan and then sold on the RI website for $15). Worst workplace culture of anywhere I have ever worked, made worse by diabolical HR policies and treatment of staff.

Advice to Management

Develop strategic framework, improve salaries to attract a higher calibre of staff, trust senior and middle level managers - and especially Country Directors - to manage their work themselves,... consolidate strategic focus regarding your programmes and completely revise the HR structures and systems.
