    I worked at The World Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Collegial environment, great people, great benefits. I really enjoyed my time here and found the networking prospects to be excellent. This was a wonderful first job with lenient hours and great colleagues. People here really care about helping others and the network after completion of the program is top notch and opens up many doors

    Cons

    The work can get tedious at times but this is true with any first job. The system can be very bureaucratic and many people within the organization are only given very short term contracts now so job security is an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give longer contracts, more job security
