Employee Benefit Reviews

Most Talked About Benefits

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off

    “26 paid days of leave is certainly unmatched in the industry. Plus 10 days for public holidays.” (6 comments)

  • Pension Plan

    “Since the reform in 1998, the formerly generous pension plan of the WB will hardly provide enough for your old days without complementary income…” (3 comments)

    It is a great benefits package - even if you are on just a one-year extended term consultant contract as I was. The health plan covers IVF even if you are only a consultant and I will always be thankful for this! Two other good things - you can cash out your vacation at the end of your contract and you can choose to extend your health insurance too (as long as you cover the whole cost of the premium - which was a lot, but the coverage was really, really good).

    Former Operations Officer in Washington, District of Columbia

    Full time staff packages are comprehensive especially for foreigners moving to WBG HQ in DC. There are additional benefits associated with this including a living away from home premium. Pension benefits are also generous, however no bonus system exists for most staff.

    very good benefits but they are slowly being eroded.
