    Pros

    Great place to build a strong background as an economist; it is a unique place to get and exchange information about the world economy; wonderful travel opportunities; remuneration package was once outstanding, then it became only good now it's very good

    Cons

    You need to get into the right "group" or network to have a satisfying working experience and career perspectives at the IMF. It is not hard if you work hard and you are young. If you get to the IMF as an EP (entry program) your position is relatively better than if you get in as an experienced economist.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to rotate management faster, and give more power to junior positions

    Government-like bureaucracy, too many lifers just promoted for having a pulse.

    Fire the dead wood, particularly the B levels
