No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Experience of a lifetime, can find ways to benefit others, learn a lot about yourself

Cons

It is often what you make of it, frustrations can lead to ineffectiveness

Advice to Management

Though I had few complaints with my country's program, in some countries PC has a reputation for not consistently providing the promised support to volunters.

    Pros

    Travel abroad & have the experience of being fully immersed in another culture. Many of the staff were highly capable and motivated, great people to get to know.

    Cons

    Some poor organization in my office, communication was poor & I found it difficult to get in touch with supervisor when necessary.


  2. Helpful (1)

    Pros

    Mostly employed by returned peace corps volunteers which means the people are all widely diverse and share similar outlooks on life and work.

    Cons

    Since it is a government agency, bureaucracy often gets in the way of projects and can cause slow completion of tasks and goals.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more cross office projects.
