Pros

Working at one of the most active UN organs, you are constantly exposed to different world crises, there is an excellent team at the Tokyo office that guides you through your work, and gives you feedback when necessary

Cons

A bit slow when there is no crisis, or when there is a crisis, things get very busy and you are not fully sure of what exactly you should be doing

Advice to Management

Take the time to talk to your interns on a daily basis so they feel like they have good feedback on what is happening around in the office

    Pros

    Salary is excellent especially taking into account that it is a tax free income.

    Cons

    Typical moribund United Nations approach. Those with good connections in their governments and respective embassies - get jobs and go up very fast, those without - are constantly kept either on short term consultancy contracts or as G staff (administrative assistants).

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff based on their qualifications and not nationality.
