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

Other Employee Reviews for Peace Corps

  1. "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.


  2. "Loved it!"

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

    Pros

    Peace Corps was one of the best experiences I ever had and opened lots of opportunities into the international development world for me.

    Cons

    There's not a set assignment or structured work schedule, so volunteers often have to be flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Have some consistency in administration across country programs.
