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

Pros

Experience of a lifetime, can find ways to benefit others, learn a lot about yourself

Cons

It is often what you make of it, frustrations can lead to ineffectiveness

Advice to Management

Though I had few complaints with my country's program, in some countries PC has a reputation for not consistently providing the promised support to volunters.

    Pros

    Mostly employed by returned peace corps volunteers which means the people are all widely diverse and share similar outlooks on life and work.

    Cons

    Since it is a government agency, bureaucracy often gets in the way of projects and can cause slow completion of tasks and goals.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more cross office projects.
