    I worked at The World Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Satisfaction of working for an institution that works to reduce poverty around the world with smart economic advice and financing. Good work life balance. Very smart and intellectual colleagues who want to make a difference in the world.

    Cons

    Being effectively an international civil service (the Bank is owned by over 180 member countries) Internal politics can at times be demotivating, but the satisfaction of the noble mission of the Bank compensates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tamp down to internal politics.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

    Recommend for young professionals who think about a career in international development
