J'ai travaillé chez Save the Children en tant que stagiaire (Moins d'un an)
I want to give a shout out to the Emergency Health and Nutrition Team! They were phenomenal and very helpful throughout my fellowship experience.
1) I was exposed to current issues in Global Health that impact underdeveloped countries. I had access to international staff based in the UK, France, Egypt, and other countries. This gave me the ability to learn directly from the front-line technical advisors who had extensive experience.
2) I was treated like full-time staff. People treated me with respect and were always willing to mentor me. Almost everyone on my team had a Master's Degree and/or international field experience. They took the time to sit with me and help me plan out what I need to accomplish to progress in my career in Global Health.
3) I learned new skills through hands-on experience. I never heard before of the Kobo Toolbox platform, and I helped the staff utilize that platform to establish a scholarly-research survey with a partnership with other international NGOs. Also, the team respected my input and previous work experience to assist in the development of projects. My previous work experience in the medical field was used to help find resources for capacity building. I was viewed and treated as a valuable member of the team.
4) The leadership and management structure was very accessible. If I wanted to ask questions, I could climb up the management hierarchy, and people supported me doing that.
5) Senior leadership, such as the COO, went around talking to people, asking them how they were doing and what projects they were supporting. I was highly impressed with the positive leadership of the senior staff. They respected us and treated us with value. The COO exemplified exceptional, down-to-earth, leadership.
1) Interns/Fellows were not given the opportunity to travel internationally to obtain field experience at country offices.
2) I accepted the offer of a certain amount per hour, with a limit of 24 hours a week. The level of work and the number of projects that I was involved in did reflect my wage, including my level of education, my multilingual skills, and over seven years of work experience. While I recognize the fact that this was an internship/fellowship, I expected the pay to be a bit more. To be fair, I never talked to H.R. about the wage because I prioritized experience over money in this instance. Looking back, this was something that I should have talked about during my interview - no fault on behalf of the organization.
I want to make sure that I am clear that the Pros greatly outweigh the Cons. There is no such thing as the "perfect company/organization," but Save the Children came very close!

Continue the great job that you are doing! This Fellowship was the most positive and constructive experience that I had in a long time. I loved working with Save the Children and I hope to work with you guys again in the near future!

J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé un entretien à Save the Children (Washington, DC (États-Unis)).
For an organization that does some fantastic work, I'm sorry to say that this was the most unprofessional HR experience I've ever had. My scheduled phone interview was cancelled 15minutes before it was scheduled to start. Two weeks later I receive an email saying that efforts were made to contact me with a request to reschedule... but I never received a call nor an email. All and all - just bad form.
