I have been working at Peace Corps full-time for more than a year

Pros

An experience like no other! Seriously, working for two years in a small village in the middle of nowhere changed my life. Good networking opportunities for after.

Cons

Admin doesn't quite understand the realities of being a volunteer, but that depends country to country.

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time

    Pros

    Peace Corps has a friendly atmosphere with a lot of flexibility for alternative work schedules. It is a great place with a great mission. Because it is a government agency the benefits are great.

    Cons

    This is a government agency, so there is a lot of bureaucracy. Also, you will be stuck on the government pay schedule, so it is difficult to progress quickly.
