Pros

Environnement international, avec des gens du monde entier.
Opportunité de gérer des initiatives pour soutenir des règles de développement dans les pays, militer pour un financement approprié, ou supporter la formation de capacités.
Equipes flexibles dans

International environment, with people from all over the world.
Opportunity to lead on initiatives to support policy development in countries, advocate for appropriate financing, or support capacity building.
Flexible teams where those who can do something will be quickly given the responsibilities, even when their grade is lower than that of their colleagues.

Cons

Les capacités et la motivation des collègues est variable, de très brillants et motivés à juste aller au travail pour le salaire sans vraiment contribuer.
Lorsque les contrats de certains se terminent, il y a généralement peu de sympathie - pas d'antipathie, mais c'est comme si perdre son travail faisait partie de la vie, sans être un gros évènement.

Colleagues' capacity and motivation is variable, from very bright and motivated to just going to work for the paycheck without contributing much.
When some people's contracts end, there is generally little concern or sympathy - no antipathy, but it is as if losing a job was just part of life, so no big deal.

    I worked at UNESCO as an intern

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with awesome people towards an awesome mission. The culture was one of genuine team spirit and togetherness. When working with kids, there was a huge emphasis on making them feel comfortable.

    Cons

    Disorganization is the only and biggest challenge of working here. There was not much planning ahead, and there was not clear delineation of roles. This spills over into uncertainty over who to talk to when trying to resolve any issues that arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan ahead of time and have WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION of everything.
