    I worked at IOM as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    work-life balance seems good for permanent staff, especially considering the benefits they get. Lots of bright people. Interesting field projects.

    Cons

    This place is so low budget it becomes tiresome. My computer constantly broke down and was running WINDOWS 98! I could barely get any work done.
    Management was completely deaf to anything innovative that tried to challenge the norm. (ie. being completely outdated and inefficient).

    People in the Geneva HQ seem way more preoccupied with their next vacation than the work that needs to get done. There was very little accountability. High-level staff would go missing from time to time...nobody, not even their secretaries, would know where they were.

    Interns get paid a really crummy stipend that makes Geneva barely liveable (people at McDonalds get paid about double!). Interns often get strung out for nine months until they get upgraded to "consultants," though this results in being paid barely above what they were paid as interns with no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim some of your outrageous staff benefits to save costs, clear out the old cobwebs that are holding you down, invest in some decent IT equipment, LISTEN TO YOUNG PEOPLE...don't treat them like dirt.
