I have been working at IMF as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

relaxed, good environment, no over time, low pressure. friendly people. much like a government agency. not much performance stress. ideal place for economics backgrounds.

Cons

no promotion, not ideal place to non economists, employees are classified in to too many levels. low turn over, not a good place to start a career, can quickly lose your competitiveness. people rarely get promoted from inside, management tend to be recruited from outside. too political

Advice to Management

Please treat all employees equally, treat services and economists based on job meritocracy, not the subject you studied at university
