Overall a great experience

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC (US)
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC (US)

I worked at Save the Children as a contractor

Pros

Super excited people in many different departments! It's great to work with people who are incredibly passionate, hardworking, and kind.

Cons

I only have one con; while about half of the management team in the DC office is wonderful, the other half is pretty abysmal when it comes to treating the employees in their department well. Having VPs throw temper tantrums when a meeting has to be moved is outrageous.

    I have been working at Save the Children full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A good mission, important work to be done

    Cons

    Very political and upper management protects their power base at all costs. Maintaining and enlarging their turf takes precedence over the mission or hiring/keeping talented people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to hire effective people rather ones that help the managers protect their turf.
