Good place to work, great and rewarding projects, not very open to the rest of the world

Investment Officer (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Inter-American Development Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsThis is a non-profit bank where you work on projects that actually make a difference instead of destroying the world like in private banks, i.e. financing renewable energy projects, schools, hospitals, protecting biodiversity, fighting climate change and poverty etc...
There is a good work/life balance and compensation is correct

ConsIt is a very latino culture and if you are not from a latino country, you feel like an outsider
Very high bureaucracy
Some senior management and HR are out of touch with personnel

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more approachable

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