    Current Employee - Staff Assistant in Washington, DC

    I have been working at IMF full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Multicultural environment
    -Tons of learning/training opportunities
    -Great benefits

    Cons

    -No room for advancement when coming in at assistant level
    -Job responsibilities always changing so you may end up doing the work of senior officers, but remain compensated at your regular rate and when positions open for the job at which you have been taking responsibility for bureaucracy steps in and tells you you aren't qualified.
    -Ageism is a daily issue, not a very accommodating place of work for anyone outside of the Baby Boomers group (e.g. Gen X and Millennials)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Increase opportunities for mobility for lower level staff!
    -Acknowledge that Gen Y is becoming the new face of the IMF and incorporate opportunities for them to contribute and be heard. End ageism.
    -Provide more transparency between staff/contractuals and management

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at IMF.

    Interview Details

    The panel interview was not challenging. First they briefly explained the structure of IMF and the job responsibility. Then asked basic questions about international finance. The HR asked questions about the career path and some behavioral questions. Finally, there was an Excel test, focusing on the international finance theories instead the manipulation of Excel. Interviewers were very nice.
