    I worked at BRAC as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the best place to go to for understanding development in a third world country. They have micro-finance, education, health projects, and lots of other interesting projects. Also everyone seemed to be very field-oriented and thus in sync with what was actually going on in the field level including very high level management.

    Cons

    The internship was not structured at all. They also seem to be a hierarchical organization at the bangladesh head office..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership is great but the work culture could be more open and uniform in the sense, lower and mid level employees should have more say in upper level decisions.
