    I have been working at The World Bank part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great professionals to work with
    Great learning experience
    Great work environment

    Cons

    It's nearly impossible to become a staff member unless you're an economist or a policy expert.
    Very few career opportunities if you're a communications or media expert.
    If you start as a consultant you can be a consultant for life and you'll work as a full time staff member but without any benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The management should really re-think about the Consultant role inside the Institution: there are professionals that work twice than staff members, for years, without any benefits or career upgrades.
