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

Pros

I enjoy to meet people from all over the world every day. The diversity of staff is definitely a great advantage, especially for non-US citizens like me

Cons

Career progression is slower than in many other organizations of the same size. There's weak differentiation in pay for high performers and average.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
