I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Cross-cultural sharing, learning a new language, making life-long friendships, experiencing the challenges and opportunities of the developing world

Cons

Difficult transitions - both going into and coming out of Peace Corps. But these transitions in themselves are excellent learning and personal development achievements.

Advice to Management

Open Peace Corps programs in more countries. Increase visibility/ awareness of Peace Corps in the US.

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

    Pros

    You have the freedom to explore your professional interests while having the network of volunteers and staff assist you. You can make it as meaningful as you want it. I keep things busy and had plenty of experiences that I can pull from, even several years later

    Cons

    The hardest part is working inside of another culture -- and two years is a short time to really affect much.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job


  2. "Strong, mission driven organization with passionate and motivated staff."

    Pros

    Co-workers at the Peace Corps have a strong sense of purpose (Peace Corps HQ). You can tell your work is doing good in the world and people are very friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    The different departments in the Peace Corps could work better together. The five-year rule (most employees can only work five years at a time) has made it difficult to maintain as much institutional memory as other organizations.
