Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The ability to create your own goals, vision, and manage your outcomes.

Cons

There's very little, often nothing, to ensure quality or successful results.

Advice to Management

Like the Fulbright Fellowship or Teach for America, the Peace Corps could benefit tremendously from increasing the competitive quality of its applicant pool.

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

    Pros

    Learn a new language; get crazy stories; great cross-cultural sharing; challenging and rewarding work; great learning experience.

    Cons

    Being away from friends, family; very unstructured (although many would consider that a pro); health can suffer if you don't take care of yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on improving institutional memory. Give PCVs the freedom to do what they do best. Focus on capacity building.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Working at the Peace Corps led me onto my current career path, which I continue on today. I am grateful for the experience and still think that no other organization compares

    Cons

    There can, at times, be too much bureaucracy and red tape. At the same time, it is a government run organization so some of that is to be expected.
