    I have been working at Goal full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoy working with GOAL. Every day is different. It is great working with an organisation with a very solid reputation with donors for delivering. The best thing about the organisation is that there is a very committed and talented team who achieve a lot in sometimes difficult locations. Fast career progression is possible to those who are working hard and doing a good job as things are not as rigid as with larger organisations. The organisation is growing rapidly in many locations.

    Cons

    There is a lot of flexibility, but that can sometimes be a downside as it is necessary to be very adaptable to changing needs and requirements.
