    I worked at IAEA as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great perks; tax-free income; commissary access for staff; great international staff

    Cons

    No job security (hired for 3 months at a time, in some cases); not a great place to start your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More security and longer contracts!

    Pros

    international environment
    nice colleagues
    its good for your cv

    salary pretty low
    for long conferences you might stay in for a very long time (as in 2am)
    you get blamed if anything goes wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at IAEA (more than an year)

    Pros

    International environment with individuals from more than 130 countries in the world.
    Lots of flexibility in the leave arrangement, very critical to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy as with many international organizations.
    For non-German speakers the city takes some getting used to. Fortunately the work language is English.

    I have been working at IAEA part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The IAEA is honestly working to keep the world safe. How many other places have you worked that can say the same thing. I wake up motivated to help the agency every day. The benefits are the best I have ever had: 6 weeks vacation, good salary, etc.

    Cons

    The IAEA is part of the UN and therefore has a slow moving bureaucracy. Decisions, purchasing and recruitment can take ages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    About 90% of the complaints I hear revolve around Human Resource management issues such as recruitment and retention. Find a easy but fair way to terminate bad employees and offer long term contracts to the best ones.
