    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The language training was very thorough, as was the cultural training.

    Cons

    The host country national staff was all fantastic; however, sometimes the country director and staff were not as professional. It varies so much from country to country, though, so I'm sure it's better in other places.
