    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at The World Bank as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work around of smart and qualified people. The pay is above the market salary.

    Cons

    STC contracts are terrible. You can only work for 150 days per fiscal year and after that you have to be out for around 4 months before they can hire you back. No benefits or rights at all.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the STC figure. Unfair and you end-up loosing smart people.
