    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries with annual raises, great mission-based work, awesome coworkers. Lots of autonomy for regional offices and opportunities to work on varying projects. Great work-life balance with flex time and telework policies.

    Cons

    Regional offices dont provide the upward mobility working at headquarters does. The 5 year rule is also difficult to work around and results in a phenomenal loss of institutional memory.

    Advice to Management

    Dont ask for your employees opinions if you've already got a plan that you're moving forward with.
