What do you like about working at USAID?

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

What don't you like about working at USAID?
"I wish I had more room to be creative and not stifled. Whenever I make suggestions it feels like I am met with a lot of resistance and need for clearances, etc."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Well, it is government so there are limitations to innovation. I also work on a small team, there are some aspects that create challenges. I would probably do more things together even as a small team to remind us of our purpose, to connect us with the work we are doing so we don't feel like just paper pushers."
