Pros

An international environment with colleagues from around the world working with an inspirational mission and mandate, Team work, easy access to information on best practices in many fields,

Dominated by developed countries, and in some times a bureaucratic institution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the developing countries members of the Board, and give more rights to the ST consultants.

    Pros

    smart colleagues, diverse group, professionally challenging, easy access to information on best practices in development economics and many other fields

    Cons

    many staff underperform but remain and even advance due to internal politics often related to nationality groups, many lack practical expertise in their professional field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recruit better, train better, assign better, reduce benefits (too much leisure time) and business class travel to be able to recruit and retain staff better aligned with poverty reduction mission
