    Pros

    The mission of the agency is in theory well-intentioned. The line workers at the agency headquarters are usually nice people, mostly RPCVs.

    Cons

    Management positions are largely political appointees (there are nearly thirty of them).

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate some of the ancient practices at HQ (some things seem to be based on processes defined in the 1960s and 70s).

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time

    Pros

    No one joins Peace Corps for the salary so it will be the most rewarding and challenging job you love. There is automony to choose the projects you pursue and you receive the training to conduct the appropriate community assessments.

    Cons

    There is little over sight and it can be very isolating with little direction or accountablity

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and stop treating Volunteers like children
