Working with academics can be tough and a bit of a challenge at times

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company itself is great to work for. Sad that they don't pay bonuses at the end of the year.My contract was ended but another colleague that started after me was called back. I believe it had to do with the IOD which is still ongoing. It left a bad taste in my mouth and I do not agree with that. You can rather be honest with me than come up with some lame excuses. Dedication , loyalty, honesty and hard work should count for something in these trying timres

It was great being the part of Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation I enjoyed working with people.The hardest part of the job was people

I enjoyed each and every session I was doing with people even though sometimes people would take me for granted.Honestly though those people made me stronger I wish I could go back to my old job actually it was not a job exactly we were the Women of Work talking things about girls and to handle our problems.

It helped a lot to me because it uplifted my confidence and how to interact with other people.

The organization was basically established for young women, where they did a research and came with findings that they are the most affected by HIV and increased pregnancy.

New Project was rolled out but structure was not met.

My workload is always planned and reviewed before I start any lesson.I have learned never to see any challange as a stumble block but any oppitunity to learn.As far as management goes every person tried their udmost best to meet company requirements.The challenging part of my job was concerns were raised but never met.What made my job enjoyable was knowing you can make a difference in a young childs life who is being educated on things that impact their lives long term.

Pros

meeting new people everyday you can impact positively.

Cons

No sucsession plan long term

when we reach the target of the participant that we recruit and retain

when you educate a participants on how to stay negative you give her all the information and the participant seroconvert after some months you built the relationship with her/him it is so difficult and hurting to deliver the news to that person.
