Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 25, 2016
Compassion has a great mission to help kids in poverty. They hire professionally competent people that are exceptional, but these people work under a stagnate, inexperienced leadership team that does not encourage development, progressive action, or productivity. I'd consider your options before spending your time and effort working there until the organization turns over better values and promotes better leadership.
Great mission, dedicated workforce, poor management.
Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – May 15, 2015
Sadly, many in senior management do not demonstrate the Christian values and leadership principles it promotes. Yet the dedicated workforce and its sponsors keep the mission moving forward. Little upward movement and advancement opportunities.
Anniversary trips to the field countries at 5 year milestones.
Core Values not lived out by self-promoting management.
Communications Associate (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – April 29, 2015
This has been a great place to work. I have had the opportunity to work and cross train in many different areas. From running machines in the distribution center to learning how to be an effective communicator through e-mails to other countries. Another big part of my position is quality assurance and taking the time to be sure that our information is accurate before being sent out the customer. The most enjoyable part of my job has been my 5 year anniversary trip in which I was able to see what the company does for poverty stricken children in other parts of the world. This was an eye opening experience for me and made me proud to know that what I am doing is not only enjoyable, but makes a life long impact in the lives of the less fortunate.
Great organization to learn about the complex global world and how to help solve poverty, a good place to grow.

I have never worked for a company as professionally managed as Compassion International. Every customer interface I've had as a contractor has been positive, motivating, and encouraging, and above all they treat employees (and contractors) with respect. I thoroughly enjoy the office environment, interacting with the staff, and contributing to the success of the company's mission.
Great place knowing you are helping poor children in countries.

I worked on a great team who supported each other. It was very encouraging, and I was constantly learning new things.
