I worked at The World Bank as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Life Balance, environment, infrastructures, people

Cons

Limited ability to grow and become permanent. Job very specialized that doesnt allow you to move to the private sector

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the STC days from 150 to 190. ETC should be renewed after 2 years
Consultants do everything in this bank and should be rewarded
