I have been working at The World Bank

Pros

Yohave ample opportunities for travel and the work is typically interesting and moderately challenging. While hours can be long at times, there's down time around the holidays and over the summer that make up for it. Good vacation time

Cons

there no clear career track for junior staff. You really need to stick around for many many years to get a staff position or you need a PhD.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more opportunities for young people to adcance
