UNESCO

Assistant Programmer Specialist (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

I worked at UNESCO as a contractor for less than a year

ProsHigh compensation; Great supervisor; Great on your CV; Cheap language classes; Great community among interns and consultants; Had the opportunity to travel.

ConsUnderstaffed; no opportunities to get a permanent position; a lot of long term staff loses its motivation; the environment is very "political"; the staff's academic level is not "top notch"; It is common sense that things don't work and take forever; Bureaucratic; Hierarchies. Fully aware that my rating of "satisfied" is the exception.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
