    Pros

    AIESEC is an amazing organization that connects young adults globally and truly breaks down cultural barriers.

    Cons

    The organizational structure, at least for the U.S. is very poorly run. They favor the high performerss and provide little to no guidance for the struggling chapters.

    Personal development, get to know people, a lot of opportunities if you know how to find them.

    Cons

    I'm personally not a fan of the culture. It's very friendly but at times it seems too student-run and lacks professionalism.
