Job Culture
Excellent place to work where you can demonstrate your skills and faith
Senior Editor/Writer (Current Employee), Federal Way, WAApril 8, 2016
Pros: People, faith, mission, vision, long-term impact
Cons: The changing culture and demographics of giving is creating some turmoil, but is also prompting new ideas and methods of conducting the work and engaging with donors.
This organization is dedicated to helping the most vulnerable children in nearly 100 countries. The work is effective, and the staff is highly skilled and committed. Transitions and reorganizations are too frequent and may not accomplish the goal set forth in their purpose. The people I have worked with are genuine in their efforts to support the mission and vision of the organization.

Global Digital Asset Manager (Current Employee), Monrovia, CAJanuary 11, 2016
Pros: Telecommuting, Interacting with people all over the world
Cons: De-centralized management and culture
A typical day would involve communicating with team members globally in various time zones. I further enhanced my interpersonal skills by interacting with people in 23 different countries on a daily basis.

The hardest part of the job was aligning 23 offices in different countries to align with one common strategy.

The most enjoyable part of working at World Vision was having the opportunity to apply my subject matter expertise towards achieving a global content management strategy.

World Vision is an amazing place to work
Global Communications Intern (Former Employee), Monrovia, CAJuly 21, 2015
World Vision International is absolutely a wonderful place to work. the culture of the company is very friendly. WVI has more of a problem getting employers to take time off than to get them to work because no one wants to take time off, due to the fact that they love their job.

Driver (Former Employee), LilongweJune 20, 2015
Pros: provide own lunch
Cons: works odd hours
I work form Monday to Friday and in most cases over weekends and public holidays. I learned that in every activity one does mus have dedication. Time management is paramount to success in every business. Work coronation helps easy implementation of the Company aims and objectives.

The hardest part of the job is when you are unable to perform your duties, and make losses for the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is were the Employer pays you well and enjoy all entitlements and benefits and at least works with free mind as long as one abides by the Rules and Regulations of the Employer.

WE PRAY EVERYDAY BEFORE AND AFTER THE WORK.

PEOPLE ALSO KIND AND SUPPORTIVE.

SOME HARD DECISION STILL NEED TO BE MADE, AFTER ALL, WE ALL HAVE TO WORK PROFESSIONALLY.

SO IF YOU ARE BAD, SOME MANAGERS WILL NOT HESITATE TO FIRE YOU.
