    I worked at AIESEC International

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, fun activities and the chance to learn a lot while at university. AIESEC helps coming or from your comfort zone, of course making mistakes but at the end you will become aware of what to do and how. Nobody will ever scream at you if you are wrong: explain your motivations, and you will be OK!

    Cons

    Since this is a not for profit organization, you will not ever have compensation: there is the need of being always motivated and determined, otherwise everything will slow down. Of you are not committed to your role, just ask to change department or leave..

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere, a chance to be exposed to different business functions of an organization, self-initiative assignments that give you the freedom to contribute as much efforts as you want, lots of recognition and support from other members

    Cons

    Good internship opportunities are competitive to get, cross-functional communication are sometimes ineffective, different teams don't have a lot of chance to interact, assignments are sometimes unclear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training for new management teams, training for new members to know about the organization's processes, more skill-training and career-related opportunities,

    Pros

    The best thing to ever happen to me was to discover and get involved with AIESEC. The most unique culture, and the absolute best people to work with. The direct positive impact you will have on other people's lives will make all the hard work you put in this organization in perspective.

    Cons

    It is a big time commitment, this is not exactly a con, because you will enjoy every moment of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on expanding!
