    I have been working at IIF as an intern

    Pros

    Very interesting tasks--staff help you learn and develop a thorough understanding of finance. You get to work with the best economists in the world.

    Cons

    When senior staff is out, it becomes difficult to have work assigned and at time you get a tad bored. However, take the initiative and find something to do.

    Current Employee - Policy Analyst in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at IIF

    Pros

    Allows a lot of policy analysis, great team and theres a lot of initiative-driven work. Management is very supportive of professional development

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons really, except that sometimes, policy work could be mixed with management training, so that the analyst role can take full advantage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a lot of advice, but one area that management could improve on is if they had a greater degree of focus on management training programs of their analysts

    Pros

    Generous Benefit Package
    Generous Vacation
    Generous Maternity Leave
    Generous 401K contribution.

    Cons

    Senior management egoistic
    Regular hours are 9-5:30.
    Comp days are not provided for weekend travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring all of the senior managers from the IMF as they are not adaptable to IIF circumstances.
