    Pros

    Autonomy to explore any projects and careers that you want, learn language and culture, be able to work with local communities and share their culture.

    Cons

    Lots of alone time or time drinking coffee with your neighbors watching dust blow by.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if training provided more skills in emotional intelligence skills or sessions in the soft skills... I also wish they spoke more about the political decisions of why some countries and sites are chosen.


  2. "Life Changing"

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time

    Pros

    Everyone knows the pros of the Peace Corps. You get to travel to a foreign country for free and live like the locals. The experience is so much more than that, but you have to find out the pros for yourself.

    Cons

    Everyone has a different Peace Coprps experience. You go in understanding that you don't have a choice over where you serve, you just serve because that is what you want to do.
