I worked at The World Bank full-time (More than a year)

Pros

It is truly worldly, well-compensated compared to non-profit organizations, and has healthy benefits package as staff (though with current budget cuts, I can't attest to how this is changing). Because the Bank is so big, with some initiative you can seek out your own interests and network and cross-over into new areas of interest.

Cons

Innovation can be crowded out by bureaucracy (as with any large institution). On some teams, a few hard workers carry others who do a really good job of investing a bare minimum of effort.
