    I worked at The World Bank part-time (less than a 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.
