Incompetent management, toxic workplace, below zero work-life balance
Finance, Budget and Accounting - Full-time staff (Current Employee) in Switzerland - 4 months ago
This organization is pretty (in)famous among Geneva psychiatrists as one with the highest incidence of burnouts. No wonder considering the incompetent senior management allowing themselves way too much discretion, zero transparency in key decisions and disregard to staff needs. Career development? - forget about it, only few get promoted and mostly those who managed to befriend those senior managers. Add frequent restructuring, poorly designed and underdeveloped software systems that non-managers have to fight with on a daily basis, contradictory internal policies and totally random groundless performance reviews, and here it is - a perfect place to derail one's career and mental health once and for all.
Okay but room for imporvement
Programme and Project Management - Full-time staff (Former Employee) in Switzerland - 4 months ago
Pros: good new office, friendly people, decent benefits, lots of travel Cons: no career advancement, lots of internal power games and inconsistent application of policies
A sweat shop
Finance, Budget and Accounting - Consultant/Contractor (Current Employee) in Switzerland - 3 months ago
A disastrous organisation where consultants treated like slave labour, allowed no leave or sick days, salary 2-3 times lower than what 'regular' employees get. If you manage go through hurdles of becoming an employee, maybe it's somewhat worth it, provided you report to a decent manager (which is rare).
Good for those with big family and not interested in career
General Support - Full-time staff (Former Employee) in Switzerland - 2 months ago
Global Fund offers great benefit package for those who have a lot of dependents (not as generous as at the UN, but still pretty good). Many manage to get even more than their salary. Otherwise, the organization is a hole: political intrigues, favoritism, managers's ignorance and, accordingly, a complete lack of career opportunities. At the same time, no need to work too hard if you dont want to - nobody ever been fired for that from there. Therefore, this organization is very suitable for those not very interested in work and career but in need to feed a huge family.
