Information System Intern (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – 30 July 2017
This is a very fun work place. The management care about the staff and focus on both spiritual and professional growth. Working at IJM was the best experience of my life. The CEO is people person and love its staff.
I was the first Contingency Manager and I immediately picked from nowhere and by the time I left after one year of service I left a vibrant and operational department having made many positive changes.I formulated the security SOPs and security manuals and the Contingency operation orders which were very successfully implemented.I left a well trained security staff. To sum up my productivity was felt by the management ,the clients and the general staff fraternity. I made a lot of friends both nationally and internationally.
There were well organised retreats.
Some times multiple instructions .There was no one to delegate to.
Productive and training work place full of new challenges
Human Resource/ Office Administrator (Former Employee) – International Justice Mission Uganda – 25 May 2017
We did have a lot of play time to bond and build teamwork. Some was in house and other was out door. It helped a lot to know people's temperaments and characters, resilience and patience. Games also helped burn off stress and build new energies.
Yes, we did have free lunches and retreats paid for by the organization
As an Intern I had learned as well as contributed to a greater extent for the Organisation. My Journey was a very pleasant one and, also had the exposure of encountering tremendous experiences !
Key Responsibilities :
1. Recruitment. 2. Setting up Provident Fund Accounts for New Hire. 3. Medical Insurance for Staff and Corporate Cab facilities. 4. Organizing Time sheets and Leave Trackers of employees. 5. Other Administrative Tasks.
I was focused in working on my role, to attain the objectives given to me, and experienced appraisals for doing so.
It was indeed a pleasurable experience to have been acquainted with this Organisation.
Change Management & Training Lead (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – 1 March 2017
If you like snacks, you will like IJM. Almost every meeting offers a snack. In fact, in some meetings it is required. And birthdays are celebrate with cakes and treats.
The culture is uber Christian which is mostly good in that you can safely leave a wallet on the desk, people are generally very friendly, and there is a lot of grace given for mistakes and life situations.
A very well educated staff who have accomplished many things - from internships in Africa to being a pastor to having a PHD, etc. It would be intimidating if everyone weren't so nice.
Great mission with dedicated staff
Culture divide between the management and new hires
Contract Counselor and Government liaison (Former Employee) – Kigali – 11 January 2016
The employees were wonderful, and working closely with the clients was so rewarding and satisfying. The management was lacking due to the fact that employee input in any concepts or developments wasn't considered or valued.
Mobilization Assistant (Temporary) (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – 29 July 2015
Overall, it was an incredible opportunity to work at International Justice Mission (IJM). It was an honor to serve alongside my colleagues in the mission to rescue thousands, protect millions, and prove that justice for the poor is possible. My time at IJM was limited due to serving through a contract with temporary status.
IJM's mission-vision is worth's everyone's concern!
Bookkeeper (Former Employee) – Cebu City, P07 – 21 July 2015
I was so privileged and honored to be part of IJM-Cebu, Philippines as a bookkeeper for almost 5 years. If it was not for the main reason that I migrated here in the US in 2011, I would still be part of that organization. Although IJM is very strict on documenting receipts and reports, and meeting deadline is a must but doing our job is easier because teamwork is at work in the organization. The IJM Headquarters in Virginia has this score card from 1-10 where our monthly reports are being graded monthly. This made the work more fun anticipating on the report card we received from the headquarter.
Annual out of town staff retreat
Required to render long hours and overtime hours without overtime pay as needed
Aftercare Counseling Intern (Former Employee) – Guatemala City – 16 July 2015
Definitely recommend this organization all around. The field office is less organized for sure but it's still a well run operation. Got to spend a lot of time with Guatemalans and my Spanish improved immensely. An honor to work with such smart and talented people.
