Pros

A good place to build credential as an economist in applied economics.

Cons

Diversity is poor at the senior level

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Fund needs to the one to impose fiscal discipline, no matter how unwelcome it is. The IMF will remain relavant in the long run by telling the truth and daring to propose tough and necessary measures.

    I have been working at IMF

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are above average. The IMF has embarked on a serious change agenda that encourages innovation and has led to the creation of may interesting work opportunities.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a big issue. Work demands have risen over the last few years and show no signs of abating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to walk their talk--they need to do their part to bring about the cultural change they desire. Not enough role models.

    I worked at IMF

    Pros

    Excellent benefits with 25 days of leave and 14 days of sick leave. No taxes for foreign employees. Recognized brand around the world (prestige).

    Cons

    Except for economists (PhDs in Macroeconomy), there are almost zero opportunities for professional growth. The technology department is mostly staffed with vendors and contractors. In other departments non-economists are only promoted based on seniority and not merit. Non-economists are usually treated as second-class citizens. Management can be arrogant and rarely listen to their subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need some young blood. Hire more young professionals and start promoting based on merit rather than seniority. Create more opportunities for non-economists.
