An opportunity to learn.

Volunteer Assistance (Former Employee)
Tokyo (Japan)

I worked at UN World Food Programme

ProsWorking at one of the most active UN organs, you are constantly exposed to different world crises, there is an excellent team at the Tokyo office that guides you through your work, and gives you feedback when necessary

ConsA bit slow when there is no crisis, or when there is a crisis, things get very busy and you are not fully sure of what exactly you should be doing

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to talk to your interns on a daily basis so they feel like they have good feedback on what is happening around in the office

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

WFP is not a bad place to work, but work environment represent general moribund United Nations style.

I worked at UN World Food Programme


Pros: Salary is excellent especially taking into account that it is… Cons: Typical moribund United Nations approach. Those with good connections in their governments and respective embassies - get jobs and go… Advice to Senior Management: Hire staff based on their qualifications and not nationality. More
