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

    Pros

    See the world from the perspective of a different culture. Learn a new language. Get to take control of your job and responsibilities. Learn to be truly independent and how to deal with situations you might not otherwise encounter. 24/7 access to call a Peace Corps doctor for health concerns.

    Cons

    Culture Shock and cross cultural misunderstandings. A feeling of isolation at times. Getting used to new food at first. Doing laundry by hand and dealing with third world hygiene beliefs.

    Advice to Management

    More staff support.
