No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Both personally and professionally challenging, lots of opportunities for growth, a real learning experience, significant leadership responsibilities, personally rewarding, develop strong personal relationships and lifelong friends

Cons

Limited resources and support, some annoying bureaucratic regulations, a lot of luck with regard to posting (country, city, local counterpart and/or supporting organization)

Advice to Management

Many, but not all, APDC's seem to lack strong management skills and the ability to effectively prioritize PC goals
