Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
At Room to Read it provided me a top opportunity to practice my Illustration skills and ability. I became a successful candidate to execute number of drawings that helped to improve the literacy. Room to Read environment promoted my wellbeing, energy and – in these most of my time – happiness. The hardest part of the job is up taking temporary projects. The most enjoyable is knowing clearly what I did was contributing to organisation goal of improving literacy and gender equality

Pros

Room for creativity

Cons

Temporary projects

Excellent Non-profit organization

Room to Read is an excellent organization that is an efficient NGO in their sector (education). Turnover seems high in the last year and i think this is partly due to low compensation but this usually goes hand in hand with working with a non-profit. The difficult thing is that they are headquartered in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Making (relatively) low compensation even more troublesome. Overall though, they conduct impactful and innovative work. The organization continues to grow and is becoming a thought-leader in education for development economics. Everyone at the company is a joy to work with and you will be hard pressed to find a more meaningful mission or workplace.

I enjoy working for Room to Read and support their work at all times.

Room to Read is a fast-based, efficient, intellectual non-profit organization based world-wide and promotes Literacy and Girls Education. It is a great place to work for as you interact with staff from various cultures and background.

Pros

Flexible office hours and work from home

Cons

None

Family like working environment. The atmosphere is right.

It's an organisation that values creative ideas. Management is open to differing opinion. Staff are made conscious of the value of each shilling that comes into the organisation. Hence, there is emphasis on cost-effective expenditure to ensure every shilling spent is worth it.

Pros

Responsible freedom

Cons

Travel time to the office due to its location especially for those using public transport, not very friendly.

A place to learn new skill

Room to Read still needs to develop a culture to work as an organization. I hope this will be improving as the organization itself is new. I believe couple of senior managers needs to do more consultation with concerned team members before making any decision and or/ drawing any conclusion.

Pros

Paid time off

Cons

Work in pressure

Room to Read is a great place to work.

The organisation is a great place to work. you get a independent yet professional working environment.A typical working day would include field visit and documentation plus analysis work sitting in the office. The management gives you time and space to complete a task and stands by its employee in all success and challenges.The most enjoyable part of this job is that we are working with Primary school children and working for kids is awesome. The hardest part of the job comes when we are not open to changes.

Pros

13 month bonus

Cons

A lot of Travelling
