Good experience, but difficult to have a career here unless you become a tenured permanent staff member.

I worked at The World Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

In general, colleagues are hardworking, dedicated to their jobs and committed to changing the world for the better. The work environment is comfortable.

Cons

As with most large organizations, you have to deal with the bureaucracy from time to time (though not as bad as the U.S. Government). Hierarchy sometimes gets in the way of innovative ideas from junior staff. There are a large number of contractors, who cannot advance and do not receive the same benefits as direct hire staff (general benefits package, parking, daycare).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The hiring structure should be changed in order to have more direct hires and less contracted positions.
