I have been working at IOM

Pros

Can end up taking up someone else's responsibilities or doing more than your job description which can provide good opportunities.
Good name-in some areas

Cons

Lack of core funding for field offices means every position is projectized which can result in a focus on proposing low-quality projects just to pay for staff, and since everyone is on a certain project, there is always less time for very valuable tasks in HR, management, and monitoring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Core positions should be funded in field missions as it creates the con above in order to produce higher quality projects and outputs.
