Current Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Consultant in Washington, DC

I have been working at The World Bank part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great professionals to work with
Great learning experience
Great work environment

Cons

It's nearly impossible to become a staff member unless you're an economist or a policy expert.
Very few career opportunities if you're a communications or media expert.
If you start as a consultant you can be a consultant for life and you'll work as a full time staff member but without any benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management should really re-think about the Consultant role inside the Institution: there are professionals that work twice than staff members, for years, without any benefits or career upgrades.
