I worked at World Learning full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

good camaraderie with junior staffers. Nice location in DC. Numerous professional networking opportunities with people from all corners of the globe.

Cons

long hours and low salaries for associates. no bonuses. They job really depends on which manager you draw as a boss. Many of them are good people who are just ill suited for the job. My first manager was perving on me during my first day of work and had to be transferred. My second manager, who lasted only a few months, was a super cool person, but totally unmotivated. My last manager was even worse.

    I worked at World Learning as a contractor

    Pros

    Was able to work with very talented and caring people who were dedicated to teaching undergraduate students using the experiential learning method.

    Cons

    This was at a time when the International Honors Program (IHP) had just been acquired by World Learning, and their visions and processes were not well aligned at the start.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure students' expectations are managed and communicate to them how this learning process differs from traditional residential colleges. Provide more support for faculty and fellows on the ground as they travel.
