Pros

Offers an opportunity to discover new cultures, philosophies, languages, and people. Work can be slow, frustrating, and hard, but once you find your groove it can be the most rewarding work you've ever done.

Cons

Training could have been more focused on work related issues. Head office staff can be unhelpful and sometimes just incompetent.

Advice to Management

Program managers could offer more support in terms of projects and work contacts. Of course, program managers will vary by country so you will have to wait and see.
