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

Pros

Good for independent and self-motivated individuals. Great opportunity to really get to know another country/culture.

Cons

Less good for those who need lots of structure and direction. I didn't have great support for finding jobs or other opportunities when I finished my time.

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I would say that the biggest pros about working with the Peace Corps were that it was a great experience, the training was very thorough, there was international travel, and the benefits were great.

    Cons

    The pay was not very high, although that's to be expected and not many people who join the peace corps need a large salary.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more programmatic support.
