I worked at US Agency for International Development full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good team environment, respect for your family/personal level, rewarding of hard work, and great opportunities for travel (even young people)

Cons

Paperwork. If a Congressman happens to be visiting a country you are working on you have to stop everything to write a briefer and get it through clearance, which can eat up more of your day than you would like. Also, there are too many meetings, which can make it hard to get your work done.

Advice to Management

Fewer meetings. And find a faster way to deal with clearances/briefers.

    I have been working at US Agency for International Development as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work in Global Health, and the leadership of my Office has been outstanding.

    Cons

    It is nearly impossible to be converted to a direct hire. Nearly everyone is some form of hiring mechanism.
