I worked at The World Bank as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

very interesting place to work and to make a contribution. I liked that you work with intelligent and experienced people form all over the world.

Cons

can be bureaucratic such that decisions can be slow to make. however this is only to be expected in an organisation of this nature (public sector international civil service)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to lessen bureaucracy

    I have been working at The World Bank as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good for an STC - as my first real job in the US, I got a really good offer. I can work from home - I don't know if that's for every STC, but since I was hired through a friend who also happens to be my boss, I can work remotely. Mentoring program for young professionals. An awesome company if you prefer international peers. I like that most of the people are ESL, so my English is not judged that often.

    Cons

    No access to additional projects. People have to know you to offer you more projects. It's hard to network within the company.
