Other Employee Reviews for Peace Corps

  1. "Life-changing experience in Costa Rica"

    Pros

    My time at Peace Corps was the most formative of my life so far. I ended up serving for four years (extending my service twice), and went on to work as a campus representative at my university.

    Cons

    This experience is not for everybody. Somebody that requires a lot of direction/supervision would probably not do very well in the Peace Corps. There are many opportunities, but it takes initiative to make them come to fruition.


  2. ""Life-changing experience. Highly recommended for those with interest""

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

    Pros

    Deeper understanding of what normal life is in other countries than you can get in any development job
    Language training and exposure
    Great colleagues
    Peace Corps organized second year volunteers to be emotional support contacts for first years

    Cons

    No structure--everything depends on what the community wants to do, so sometimes you don't do much at all
    Technical training is only moderately useful
    Somewhat bureaucratic country office
    Isolation (for some placements)

    Advice to Management

    More project management training would be very beneficial.
