I have been working at The World Bank

Pros

like it, since it is good place to grow and to learn things, good payment also, tax free. One less thing to worry about...

Cons

they have country quotas... difficult to get a job there, if you are born in US, India or China. HOwever, if you are from a country with 1000 population, you get the job.

    Pros

    Very friendly and open culture. Almost anyone you email and ask will meet you for coffee and talk about their work. Lots of opportunities for networking. Tons of interesting projects, although it depends on your area. Looks great to other employers on the resume.

    Cons

    Just be aware that very few STCs move on to be staff. This is not really a downside if you're not counting on it, but a lot of STCs spend a ton of time there waiting for a staff position that will never develop. This always seemed pretty clear to me, but some people hate it. For those who do make staff it's a great job, but there's relatively little room for advancement within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Could be doing more to recruit and retain young talent.

    Smart people, but self-entitled... missing moral compass

    Pros

    Diverse, well-paid, challenging, and fast-paced (a rarity for an NGO)

    Cons

    Highly political, corrupt, and management is a mess or self-interested.

    Advice to Management

    Check into your corruption with projects and contracting.
