Pros

Co-workers at the Peace Corps have a strong sense of purpose (Peace Corps HQ). You can tell your work is doing good in the world and people are very friendly and welcoming.

Cons

The different departments in the Peace Corps could work better together. The five-year rule (most employees can only work five years at a time) has made it difficult to maintain as much institutional memory as other organizations.

    Pros

    You get an individual experience, what you think of when you want to join the Peace Corps. The immersion into a local country is a fantastic, unique experience.

    Cons

    Depends entirely on your site placement and the management of the Peace Corps in country. Some bosses are better than others, this makes it almost impossible to compare experiences in the Peace Corps

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cross-cultural sharing, learning a new language, making life-long friendships, experiencing the challenges and opportunities of the developing world

    Cons

    Difficult transitions - both going into and coming out of Peace Corps. But these transitions in themselves are excellent learning and personal development achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Open Peace Corps programs in more countries. Increase visibility/ awareness of Peace Corps in the US.
