    Pros

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

    Cons

    Unless you can manage AIESEC and academic well, it is difficult to work continuously in AIESEC. Voluntarily, a lot of time should be devoted to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    This is one of the best things that I have experienced. Keep working as you all work and deliver the best experience possible to all the members of AIESEC

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

    Pros

    An AIESEC MC VP experience is invaluable for your professional career and personal development. I've never dreamed after University that I would be able to make the connections I was able to make, only after one year. If you are considering an MC experience, you should know, that a lot is expected of you and you must perform. But the good thing, is that AIESEC is such a supportive environment with so many resources for you. These are things that do not come so easily after AIESEC.

    Cons

    - Hard work
    - Sharp learning curve
    - High expectations
    - Low pay (it's a no profit, so that is a given)

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering young people across the globe!

    I worked at AIESEC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited learning potential. Travel the world, meet tons of cool people. Get experience while you're still in college. AIESEC did wonders to prepare me for my career, and I'm definitely better for the time I spent in the organization.

    Cons

    You will work hard. Really hard. You'll also probably have to fail to learn. But it's a supportive and supported environment, so you come out of the experience better for it.
