Resettlement (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: supportive office staff and co workers, generous pto, flexible schedule when necessary
Cons: low pay, over worked, large caseloads, no room for growth
I love everyone I work with! They are willing to help when ever they can. The management staff is mostly supportive and open, some more than others. The hard part is the low pay for the extensive amount of work that is expected for specific departments. Vacant positions and lay offs have added to the general work load. The pay is lowest for similar positions in metro Atlanta but they offer decent medical and dental benefits and generous paid time off (vacation, sick, personal, and floating holidays) that have to be used.

Senior Education Manager (Current Employee), Freetown,February 20, 2014
Pros: capacity building, team work, effective monitoring, programme integration, lobbying with governing
Cons: arbitrary end of contract of some staff members, some staff are favoured
I have lived most of my job life in a participatory line of duty; team work, partnership at organizational level, leadership, Trainings, communications and reporting. I now have a strong background to step up to a new challenge and develop my career pathway, particularly in a rapid growing organizations .
In October 2012, I was awarded the Distinguished Humanitarian SARLO Award ( received in San Francisco) organized by the International Rescue Committee in the USA in recognition of my contribution to improving, especially the lives of displaced and refugee children and women in the Republic of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone while working for the IRC.
over the years ,I have enjoyed working with my colleague staff members . we have lived together as a very large family sharing ideas and building capacities of one another

I like to work for the IRC because it offer a challenging and rewarding environment. The combination of diverse staff and great management team makes a thriving and fun environment for all.

Independent consultant (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 21, 2013
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: conflict setting (under rebels control)
I liked working with IRC firstly as an organization working in humanitarian setting where there is a huge need of staff and the kind of my work " Engaging men through accountable practice"in ending violence against women and girls. I think is more about the impact of the work I do than more than just money as we aim to build free violence society where women and girls are free to express their need and access to opportunity.
- I really appreciated working with my colleagues, having the same objective in a challenged setting.
-The hardest time: is when I was not able to go to the field and support field staff because of the fighting in the region. Evacuated and relocated several times.
- It was during the pilot testing activities in one of the community when an old man testified " if I knew that violence against women and girls impacts also my life, I would not deny my girls to go to school. Maybe she could become a doctor and or Minister and could support me and my wife.
