    - international travel for work
    - great health insurance
    - lots of vacation time
    - work with many talented, educated, well-traveled people in their mid-twenties and thirties


    -Potential for growth is limiting- many lateral moves available
    -long hours at times, salary position
    -low pay
    -difficult to move to management or senior positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - moving to an open concept was very difficult/ un-enjoyable, no privacy and less productive
    - provide more opportunities to grow, mentor programs with senior staff, more development and tuition reimbursement for continuing education

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Council On International Educational Exchange.

    Interview Details

    This was a fairly quick process until they had to make their decisions. I receives a call asking for a phone interview two days after I sent iny resume and had the phone interview during that same week. A week later I was asked to come in for an in person interview and met with five people for individual interviews over about 4 hours. I was told I would hear from them in the next 2 weeks but after I had heard fromy references that they were called it was about another 2 weeks.
