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

    Pros

    Excellent volunteer support in every aspect including health, mental, and administrative. I received the best medical care of my life.

    Cons

    Pay as a volunteer is abysmal and I did not receive a pay raise my entire 2 years of service, despite filling out several living allowance surveys and obvious signs of incredible cost of living increases in the country. Stipend was not enough to live on and I had to support myself with outside funding.


  2. "Stressful Environment of Office of Budget Analysis"

    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.
