    I worked at AIESEC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic mission. Amazing people. Chances to travel all over the world. When properly leveraged can change your life and career trajectory in way that few organizations can.

    If you're young and open to learning about yourself and the world, this is your organization.

    Cons

    The nature of the organization is one where your superiors are learning how to best perform in their role at a similar pace that you're learning your own role. This can lead to some unfortunate misunderstandings and challenges in the learning process. Having a willingness to own to your mistakes and open communication lines mitigates this to a great deal.

    Can be unorganized and inefficient at times.

    Low pay. Not a problem if you're aware of this from the onset.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate openly and fairly. At the end of the day, the hope of the mission and the energy of youth is at the heart of AIESEC. Playing to these strengths always will help you in achieving your goals as management. Get to know your members personal career aspirations and the personal history they bring as individuals when they enter a role. Knowing this will help you best use their strengths, inspire them, and anticipate challenges.

    An opportunity to work with young talent and a platform which provides the opportunity to develop leadership skills to compete in the market.
