Pros

It is a huge organization. You can get good experience in international development.

Cons

But in order to do so you have to find a mentor, and the probability of finding a good mentor does not always depend on your qualifications.

    Pros

    There are several good reasons for working for the World Bank:
    -great institutional goals with major focus on development and poverty reduction
    -smart and talented colleagues in a multicultural environment
    -joining missions to developing/emerging countries is a really fulfilling experience
    -potential for a diverse work program

    Cons

    Given the institution's size, decision making can be slow. If you are hired as a consultant, it may take long time until you become a regular staff member.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you set clear goals and expectations for your employees.
