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

    Pros

    Provides you good field experience if you are interested in a future career in development. You are able to experience a country, culture, language like most others in the world will never experience.

    Cons

    The experience can be very lonely, isolating, and hence challenging at times. The lack of amenities can mean you are exposed to extreme heat (in my case, in the desert of Africa) that can make you vulnerable to illness and health issues. Very low pay.


  2. "Rewarding yet Challenging"

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

    Pros

    Travel the world, learn new languages, escape for two years, and make a difference in people's lives. You're really out on your own to do what you want and work independently.

    Cons

    Typical developing country woes, health problems, lack of amenities, etc. but also isolation, conflicts with host community, frustration at pace of work

    Advice to Management

    Develop a real approach to international development
