Positive Outlook

I have been working at Peace Corps part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great working atmosphere, laid back, friendly people, tons of multicultural aspects since it is the peace corps after all. As an intern, I did a lot of legit work, like managing the library and helping with official significant project. I did not xerox at all.

Cons

Honestly there really isn't anything that bad about when I was working there...I really like it there.

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

    Pros

    Great experience, wonderful opportunity to explore an entirely different part of the world, culture, lifestyle.

    Cons

    Extremely challenging physically and mentally; lack of organized projects and communications and administrative systems can be very frustrating. Are the PCV work and projects really effective and sustainable? Its difficult to measure this.

    Advice to Management

    Peace Corps primarily tackles goals 2 and 3, which are great and very important. However, in order to be more effective PCVs for goal 1, it's important and each country office and CD try to collaborate well with existing NGOs and other development projects. Helping developing countries is NOT a competition, it's a world wide effort that needs to be collaborative.
