    Pluspunten

    The organization is one of the largest human rights funders globally. Staff represent these values, lean more senior than junior, and are well-educated and well-experienced.

    Minpunten

    Role alignment has led to incorrect assumptions around the specialist role, most often between program admin specialist and program specialist. Many are led to believe that you can advance from one to another, but that is actually not true as they are both on the same level internally. They almost always do exactly the same job, however are not treated equally and the admin specialist is disadvantaged in terms of how their title impacts future job prospects.

    Negatief vooruitzicht

    Ik voltijd gewerkt bij Open Society Foundations voor meer dan 1 jaar

    Pluspunten

    - very prestigious foundation, is a resume booster if you want to do work in the foundation or Human Rights advocacy space - really smart and down to earth colleagues, great learning environment, lots of brown bag lunches, seminars and workshops - depending on the team you are on, you can have a really great experience and learn a lot, but for administrative roles, the expectation is that you move on after 2-3 years or stay stuck in your role forever, not move up within the organization - great benefits, Cadillac of health insurance, 401k (employer automatically contributes 10% of your salary), catered lunches, 9 months maternity, 6 months paternity, flexible work arrangements

    Minpunten

    - nonprofit pay, little room to move around if you enter in an administrative role, do not expect to move up to a program officer role if you just stick around long enough, it's a very bifurcated organization, and even more so with the recent organizational alignment. - I was fortunate to be on a pretty good team, but many others complained about the dysfunctional teams they were on. Seems to be an organization full of very smart people who make terrible managers - lots of politics and trying to preserve their place within the org.

    Positief vooruitzicht

    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij Open Society Foundations voor meer dan 3 jaar

    Pluspunten

    Vibrant working culture on huge range of themes , vast global network leveraging local offices and intl hubs, opportunity to work on a given subject from essentially limitless angles, generally smart & dedicated programs staff. Great benefits and a ton of travel. Would recommend at officer level or higher.

    Minpunten

    Truly terrible HR department, change management is rough, little to no upward mobility (new standards set for officer level and below mean that top talent is only recruited into lower roles and management has calcified - many 'lifers' at the top don't meet the new standards). Constantly engaged in program strategy setting/updating, rather than carrying out and reviewing.

    free lunch and Christmas break

    Minpunten

    Everything. HR are the worst I’ve ever encountered in my life. They defend their senior management even when the management behaves inappropriately towards its staff. Lots of bullying, sexual harassment cases, discrimination etc. I don’t recommend working there at all. Might look great and a perfect place to work at -looking outside in - but if you ever feel that someone is treating you unfairly, Open Society will throw you under the bus to save itself, and immediately try and shut you down. Employees are scared to whistleblow or put in official complaints.

    Pluspunten

    Free food, summer hours, loads of social events, travelling, supportive colleagues

    Minpunten

    No work life balance, no career progression, dysfunctional HR system, entitled managers and Board members, emotional blackmail, exploitation and blame culture. The organisation does not practise its core values to protect rights and it’s ironic how they treat colleagues so inhumanly.
