I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working with professionals
Always something to do to help
Fun people and pretty girls
Good food and other activities always coming along

Cons

Having to be all spiffy when the front office arrives; really not a bad thing but need to get two twenty words.

Advice to Management

Stay out of the way: do not think for it will weaken the team. Send all the bullies packing straight away.
