5 Star Office Environment/People
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 17, 2017
My typical day was filled with cheerful faces and a stimulating environment. I formed a friendly relationship with several of the staff. My hours were fair, and we had fun food events often. My co-workers were friendly, and I always felt comfortable holding a conversation with or confronting anyone in the office if needed.
Pros
Free lunches, breakfast, happy-hours, christmas parties, great people, beautiful office

Unless the founders and old guard moves on it will continue to fail
Manager (Current Employee) –  TajikistanJanuary 6, 2017
It could be a great place to work. Wonderful mission. But the people who set it up have hung around to long and destroyed the institution. Unless there is meaningful change at Board level and the old senior management the institution will continue to rod away; self serving famiky and friends of the founders.

Once Strong now weak
Operations CFO (Current Employee) –  Mission Viejo, CAMarch 2, 2016
FINCA International is undergoing a stressful, possibly existential period given the strong U.S. dollar and low commodity prices. The exchange rates of many of our subsidiaries have declined significantly and our borrowers are having difficulty repaying their loans.What was once an easy-going, collegial environment is quite stressful.
