I have been working at The World Bank as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Great place to work around of smart and qualified people. The pay is above the market salary.

Cons

STC contracts are terrible. You can only work for 150 days per fiscal year and after that you have to be out for around 4 months before they can hire you back. No benefits or rights at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revise the STC figure. Unfair and you end-up loosing smart people.

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

    Pros

    Great access to high level policy makers, resources available for staff and in debth experience in developmental health and economics internationally.

    Cons

    No benefits for STCs, and a capatation on the number of days you are allowed to work with little to few opportunities to transition into permanent staff unless you have a PhD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extend the number of days for STCs (more than 150 please), and provide more mentorship and leadership opportunities for younger staff to be long term members of the Bank.
