I worked at Peace Corps as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Work with lots of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who are passionate about their experiences, and always have a good story to tell.
-Some cool special events and guest speakers from local and international government officials.

Cons

-Extremely stressful government position dealing with possible furloughs and constantly shrinking budget
-Stale environment on financial floor

Advice to Management

Other offices seem to have a lot more fun, but in OBA it was extremely boring, uninteresting and stressful.

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

    Pros

    Learn a new language, live in a new culture, be challenged to solve problems in ways you never expected. Service in a small village in southern Mali, but Glassdoor doesn't even have Bamako as an option for location.

    Cons

    It can be lonely. There will be challenges: communication, plumbing, and transportation come to mind.


  2. "Eye-opening meaningful opportunity"

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

    Pros

    First hand experience with project development, coordination and management
    Lots of responsability - sink or swim!
    Supervisors are host country nationals!

    Cons

    Community buy-in - free-hand out mentality
    Sustainability can be ignored in favor of implementing projects - money should come from within not internationally for most types of projects volunteers work with.
    PC mission is outdated and does not reflect needs of developing world - goals 2 and 3 happen as a result of living in a community for 2 years.
    Many Americans are unaware of what Vols do.

    Advice to Management

    PC mission is outdated!
