    Committed people working on a noble mission; but agency undergoing big, needed reform - ride the wave or get seasick!

    I worked at US Agency for International Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mission; important, valuable work. Lots of opportunities, and a particularly interesting time to be there because the Agency is moving to '2.0 development' - an real evolution in development away from a few, exclusive power centers and towards lots of partnerships, ideas, innovation, leadership and funding from all corners of the globe. Very bright people work here.

    Cons

    CEO - Administrator Shah's - reforms, energy, style create a self-admitted "wake" - so tough to work without occasionally hitting the breakers. Bureaucracy is strong, and there's also an added challenge here that foreign service and civil service don't always get along and respect each other. For top staff anyway, hours and work demands are a challenge. You're a long way from the work in the field - and too-tight security restrictions isolate us even further.
