STC- Your satisfaction depends on what you do and who you work for

I worked at The World Bank part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Interesting work, exposure to different seminars and knowledge sharing if you have time

Cons

You only deal with your specific assignment- no opportunity to interact with other areas or other. The recognition of your contribution in the piece of work depends on who you work for. They can dare not even mentionning you and as if they did all the work on their own.

    I have been working at The World Bank as a contractor (less than an 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 worked at The World Bank part-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Could be doing more to recruit and retain young talent.
