Company Culture

Unless you are close personal friends with a long-time member, forget about being a member of the club.

Support from management

Will abandon you in a pinch.

Teamwork

Will exclude those outside the club.

Internal Communication

Smoke and mirrors used by leadership to seem engaged.

Work-Life Balance

Short term mentality.

Company Image

Cliquish- not kind to outsiders. Not liked by the rest of USAID.

Job Security

Personal Service Contractors (PSC) are bought using the same process used to buy pencils.

Inclusive / Diverse

Lack of racial diversity in the field programs- all African Americans are in support roles.

What I dislike about the company

Not friendly to outsiders.
