wonderful mission
Senior Research Technician II (Current Employee), New York, NYApril 1, 2015
Pros: great mission, great science
Cons: few rotten apples, lack of funding
The Council is a great organization with a great mission. Its always nice to know your work is helping people around the world. At their biomedical research department you are expected to work long hours, but to some degree that is the nature of the work. One can really learn some great science or some poor science, it all depends on who is your supervisor. Most colleagues are very knowledgeable and friendly. It is mostly a relaxed atmosphere. The hardest part is dealing with the few rotten apples with no support. And they are really hurting for funding these days.

Sharing results, advancing knowledge, highlighting innovation
Accounts Payable (Current Employee), New York, NY 10015February 1, 2013
Pros: holidays off
Cons: micro management
The Population Council produces series and briefs that present data on the situation of adolescent girls and boys and young women and provide background on Council research and programs on youth/transitions to adulthood.

In addition to program briefs and OR summaries, the Council's recently completed FRONTIERS program has produced a series of documents that synthesize the results from ten years of operations research and lessons learned into eight major legacy themes.

Leading work on adolescent girl programming and advocacy
Adolescent Girl Program Training Consultant (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 1, 2012
Pros: working with great minds in different countries and on different interconnected themes, with access to relevant data.
Cons: limited funding still on adolescent girl programs
The Population Council has thought leaders in the field of adolescent girls, gender, health and other themes touching on women's agency and wellbeing across the life span. Working there is a true learning and networking opportunity.

The bulk of my work there consisted of organizing and leading capacity building workshops for program staff in organizations in Francophone West Africa and in Haiti.

The most interesting part of the work is the opportunity to create, brainstorm and adapt new programs to the specific context and realities on the ground, while always taking girls' needs into account.

What is most difficult is getting implementing partners to match activities to girls' needs. There usually is a disconnect there.
