    Pros

    Get to live abroad, they really take care of you, get to learn a new language, you'll always have a good story in future interviews.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a bad situation. Peace Corps isn't very responsive to individual volunteers needs if their name is on the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be better feedback mechanisms for discontent. I and other volunteers felt very shut out at time, especially with legitimate isses.
