I have been working at The World Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I enjoy to meet people from all over the world every day. The diversity of staff is definitely a great advantage, especially for non-US citizens like me

Cons

Career progression is slower than in many other organizations of the same size. There's weak differentiation in pay for high performers and average.

    Current Intern - Short-term Consultant (STC) in Washington, DC

    I have been working at The World Bank as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very multicultural staff so ideas are very diverse and varying. It is an intellectual stimulating environment. As an short-term employee, I had a strong ownership of the work I did.

    Cons

    It is bureaucratic. It is definitely faster than most government agencies, but there are still some bureaucratic. It definitely is demanding in terms of work so work schedule isn't always optimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to not overwhelm employees with work.
