    I worked at European Commission full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the smartest (and possibly the nicest) people I ever met, learning from them; very nice work environment; having this rare feeling that what you do really matters as it can affect lives of millions of people

    Cons

    Some of the pros come with a lot of stress. Things can also move very slow, but that's the reality of political pricesses. Besides, projects in a corporation sometimes also move at glacial pace.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at European Commission.

    Interview

    I applied on August 2012. I received an acceptance email on December. I sent many emails to Heads of Unit, Officers and Directors. Many of them answered me. Also a director answered me telling me that I forwarded my email to the HR. Then, on February I received an offer and I accepted it. I started on 1st March 2013.
