Employee Comments

    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.

    Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    very good benefits but they are slowly being eroded.

  • Mar 11, 2015
    Current Senior Economist in Washington, District of Columbia

    Good initial package as staff (but behind the IMF), very limited progression over time. Benefit package might be revised soon as a result of the ongoing reform of the institution.

  • Mar 3, 2015
    Former Disbursement Analyst in Washington, District of Columbia

    The vacation/sick leave plan was excellent.

    Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Amazing benefits. Most people had more days off than they could take. Health plans and retirement plans are top notch. Additional perks (travel points, language classes, compensatory leave) are also negotiable with managers

  • Dec 10, 2014
    Current Extended Term Consultant in Washington, District of Columbia

    - Accrue 2 days of vacation per month
    - Ability to follow Alternative Work Schedule (AWS): 9 to 6PM workday, every other Friday off

    Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Benefits vary widely be contract type from some of the best in the world for international staff based in the field to almost nothing for non-term (consultant roles).

  • Oct 30, 2014
    Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Still one of the best games in town (in DC)

  • Nov 11, 2014
    Former ETC2 in Washington, District of Columbia

    Health insurance and 15% lump sum at end of appointment

  • Oct 28, 2014
    Current Operations Analyst in Washington, District of Columbia

    The benefits are okay considering our mission is a world free of poverty
