I have been working at Peace Corps full-time

Pros

Peace Corps has a friendly atmosphere with a lot of flexibility for alternative work schedules. It is a great place with a great mission. Because it is a government agency the benefits are great.

Cons

This is a government agency, so there is a lot of bureaucracy. Also, you will be stuck on the government pay schedule, so it is difficult to progress quickly.

    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.
