working with refugee children
Project Executive (Former Employee) –  Belgrade3 September 2017
A typical day at work was organizing their day, and activities.
We were doing workshops, talking about their trip to Serbia, etc.
Hardest part of the job was containing their stories, as they were away from their families, didn't know where was their next stop... And the best part was having fun with them, all the playing and celebrating life.

International Programs Advisor (Former Employee) –  United Kingdom15 August 2017
The mission is vital. If you're directly implementing programming, it's very fulfilling. For less direct roles, the impact of your work is less visible, and it's up to you to find the motivation for less pay, more hours, and the layers of bureaucracy.
Pros
Mission Driven
Cons
A bit corporate for a non-profit organisation

Construction Manager (Former Employee) –  Kinshasa, CD6 July 2017
I wasn't giving the full support to deliver-Especially Logistics.. Didn't learn much. Boss was a Micro-Manager, telling what to do-didn't allow for innovation..
Very challenging environment, with decision makers dispersed in different locations- Coordination was difficult. Hated the every morning briefing meeting that would take up productive time of the day.
