"Great place to intern"

Pros

Interned with a fun, young team. Friendly environment and great location. Work with a lot of returned Peace Corps volunteers so everyone has stories to share.

Cons

Day-to-day tasks for interns tended to be repetitive. Would have been nice to work on larger projects. Although not a problem for interns, the turnover rate is high due to office policy so don't expect to stay for the long-term.

    Pros

    Working for the Peace Corps gives you the opportunity to gain valuable experience working internationally as well as proficiency in another language. The flexibility in working hours and ability to determine the focus of my work were major benefits. The job also gives you a sense of contributing to society.

    Cons

    After gaining perspective from two years of working and living in another country, the value of individual projects may seem diminished in the context of the developmental progress of the country as a whole. There was frustration over the instability of job and projects
