    It is very exciting to work on research projects that are useful to people in the world. The short-term consultant position was very helpful because I was able to able work on my own hours.

    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
