I worked at Peace Corps (More than a year)

Pros

This was the hardest, most rewarding job that I have ever had. Through this experience I learned a knew language, was able to work with a completely different culture and learned how to handle set backs.

Cons

Sometimes dealing with the federal government was a hassle.The communication between the field and Washington was often times delayed and confusing.
