    Internships at BRAC

    Intern (Former Employee) Dhaka (Bangladesh)

    ProsThis 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nonexistent Development, both personal and social

    Education Management (Former Employee) Dhaka (Bangladesh)

    Pros- strong brand in the regions it plays in, as well as at in the development sphere, if you're planning on leaving

    Cons- nonexistent development work performed
    - no emphasis on personal development
    - low pay
    - bureaucratic
    - branding outweighs impact
    - no substance to work

    Advice to Senior Management- modernize
    - cut staff where possible - the amount of waste and unused labor capacity is beyond belief

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
