Sweat shop; egomaniacal upper management
Business Resource Development (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – May 16, 2018
There were far too many outsized egos in upper management. Little room for advancement. Averse to change or criticism. In the NGO field, MSH was considered arrogant and overpriced. That is not to say there were not gifted, caring people there. There were. But they were worn down by the system there.
The pay was good, and the international experience was great. But there was no work-life balance, and, in part due to USAID schedules, I worked every holiday -- including Christmas and Easter -- while at MSH. The company was officially closed, but USAID often set ridiculous deadlines, like Jan. 2.
