Too many politics and huge turn over. A lot of changes in the hierarchy leads to confusion, and restarting all over with every new management. No stability.
Pros
Junior and less seniority staff are very good
Cons
No appreciation from the management side- complicated top management

Poor management has resulted in layoffs, firings (from Executive team on down), as well as staff leaving due to a negative culture, it is sad to say this once well-meaning non-profit is not longer a viable institution.
Pros
none right now
Cons
toxic atmosphere and working conditions

It provides employees with good work ambiance. however, top management is a bit detached from other staff members. The company does not involve local staff in resource mobilization.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
short leave

On a typical day, one has to contend with ensuring smooth running of the office and that grantees' ( there are 27 grantees at a point in time) are fund-starved and their activities are approved.

One lesson at Pathfinder International (PI) is the strong Monitoring and Evaluation ( M & E) component inserted in the programme which facilitates performance measurement.


The workplace culture at PI is very friendly, especially since staff were recruited at about the same time and stayed together ( with minimal attrition) till the project ended in April 2011.


The hardest part of my job as the head of Finance ( where i also combine some administrative role) was to say 'good bye' when project was nearing its end and was down-sizing.


It was enjoyable working at PI because of the convivial atmosphere that exited.
Pros
Team work among the staff
Cons
Given deadlines at short notice

Working at Pathfinder was a dream come true to save the world while growing my skills. It is hard work but everyone is always willing to collaborate and make it work. You really feel like you are part of a team. There are of course issues due to the current political climate but that is anywhere in this field right now. I would work there again in a heartbeat. I moved for family but there are many opportunities for professional development and I loved the people I worked with. Great benefits and pay.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Hard work and hard deadlines

After my 7 days of joining, I was sick. As, there is no provision for any kinds of leave by organizational policy, I had to continue my duty with sickness. Which became great pressure for me both physically and mentally at that time

My typical day at work would be a good vobes only working environment, focused on the job,helpful and getting along with my coworkers
I learned to work better with not only my age group but with people of different age groups too

Management there was good.

The hardest part of the job was walking very long miles during the researches.

The most enjoyable part of the job was honestly getting paid at the end of the day after a long hectic 10hours working day.
Pros
Free transport
Cons
No breaks all day i worked.

Technical support teams based outside of the field are currently being reduced or removed, and impact on projects has yet to be seen. Suggest to wait a few years to see if it becomes more stable.
