    I worked at The World Bank as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Dynamic environment, allows to work with governments and high level players, and to directly contribute to the development of countries.

    Cons

    To succeed it is almost obligatory to work an unusual amount of hours, too many hours on the job, and there is no certainty that you will be retained after consultancy period is over.

    I have been working at The World Bank

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits and prestigious organization to work for.
    Get to work with highly qualified intelligent minds. Diverse global workforce.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. No focus on goals. No proper employment. They keep people on
    N contract and so no security and therefore poor performance.
    No challenging work except in some areas.
    Employees don't have any opportunities for growth.
