    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 Management

    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


  8. Job Satisfaction depends on your immediate supervisor.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    I interned in the Africa and Middle East department and was very well supervised by its head. He made sure that I was fully involved in the department's work, invited me to staff meetings, read my work and gave comprehensive feedback, etc.

    Cons

    Departments do not cooperate with one another and, at times, it seemed to me that some of them were competing with one another. I felt that when the internship topic was overlapping between the department I was interning in and the capital markets department. I was also disappointed that I could not take advantage of my internship to network and land a full-time job in finance. Despite being a powerful lobby of the finance industry, the IIF was not helpful in my full-time job search.

    Advice to Management

    The management should try to make the different departments cooperate with one another. Moreover, they should help interns in their job search in the financial sector.
