    Avantages

    So far I have been very happy with Mercy Corps. The organization is very flexible and forward thinking (in terms of its policies and practices around flexible work location, etc.) and I find most everyone is genuine and open to new ideas. That said, I think the openess can be sometimes too open and I now find there is some catch up work in regards to the strategic aspect of this. This seems a bit chaotic in nature but I appreciate the fact that it is an organization that is thinking, talking and trying to challenge themselves. They are in a period of huge growth and are thinking about how to make this happen efficiently and effectively.

    Inconvénients

    First, the organization consistently describes itself as "relationship-driven" and flat yet I don't get the impression that all employees have access to the people or even know who the key people are. I think MC should consider the messaging here. With exponential growth and a highly decentralized structure this may not, in fact, be the message to send. MC is working on this.

    Second, growth is good but needs to be managed. I see a lot of efforts in this regard. The organization has recently restructured and is really thinking strategically around this growth. My role is a good example of this. A position that takes a very innovative approach to a traditional field. I appreciate this.

    Third, I was told so many good things about this organization before joining and these things do hold true. I think our teams and our field work are our biggest assets but don't see us using them as such. I hope to see a bit shift in using this asset to communicate our work to people outside! We are not very well known for such a a large organization which is a pity.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you are doing! I have been very impressed with the honesty and direction of the senior leadership. Do keep an eye on the outside as many of you are long-term MC'ers. Always stay relevant. Revisit compensation. I don't think it is that competitive but maybe this is also a strategy (and it also depends on who you ask). Oh...change the name! I know this is easier said than done but I truly think our name is an impediment to our brand!

    Inconvénients

    A highly left-wing political organisation who will target anyone who does not share their communist views on the world. At the same time, they have management who milk the organisation for every penny they can get and use it as a personal cash cow.

    Disorganised and no processes in place for a lot of thing. Also some management need more support/training. Career progression is very slow and very unclear.

    J'ai travaillé chez Mercy Corps en contrat permanent (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Lots of new business and interesting work coming in all the time, so opportunities to gain exposure to new approaches and technical areas. Some fun people and a good team spirit both in HQ and field posts. Excellent internal systems/processes for program management and core technical approaches. Expat field postings have good benefits, especially for families with children. Solid communications and branding approach that is respectful of those we serve. Good amount of flexibility to try new things.

    Inconvénients

    The company grew quickly and some senior management should have been replaced with more qualified industry veterans with experience at NGOs larger than Mercy Corps, rather than shuffling around people who'd been in the agency for 15+ years. The company lowballs its own staff on salaries- negotiate hard! HR was horrible during my time- unresponsive, inflexible, against its employees interests. Finally, I saw jobs at the mid level given to senior managers'/ HQ's/ board members' "favorites" rather than to the most qualified candidates. Really a shame to see the organization stoop to this level considering they are able to attract top talent.

    Conseils à la direction

    Professionalize the senior management team to include more outsiders and fewer Mercy Corps "lifers" to diversify viewpoints and improve leadership quality, try not to make junior and mid-level staff so disposable. Continue with the flexibility field teams have to try new things.
