I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Learning a new language, immersing yourself in a new culture. It's great program/ project management experience.

Cons

It is not a structured job, that is half the battle and it's up to you to make up projects and work together with your counterparts to create projects and make the most out of your Peace Corps service.
