    StarStarStarStarStar Former Strategic Planning and Staffing in New York, New York State

    I did not have benefits as I was not employed in a full-time role. However, I heard my colleagues had great benefits and were content with them.

    The best thing about the benefits package at United Nations is that it is a very well structured benefit system.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Economics Affairs Intern in New York, New York State

    It's an ideal place to work because the working environment is super friendly. Staff and interns would go to the ground floor canteen and there has everything you wanted. But the benefits to interns are restricted in experience, no salary is paid.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    There was none for interns. Interns are not paid, and get no benefits. They are simply expected to work for free in some of the most expensive cities in the world. Scandalous for a big civil rights organisation like the UN.

    Decent salary, health insurance (even after service insurance cover), tax free salary for non-American citizens, and good annual leave, sick leave etc.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Communications in New York, New York State

    Great benefits, especially the pension scheme and the decent salary which is comparable to other organizations. There is also time off for new parents which I found helpful. Overall a positive experience. I will continue.
