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

Pros

Enjoyed meeting all the international participants; lots of young people make for a fun environment; learn about ECA programs up close; gain understanding about international exchanges

Cons

Salaries in this field in general are just low, and this is on par. Also, it can take a while to advance beyond your initial hiring position

Advice to Management

Give associates more responsibilities and opportunities to exercise creativity or practice writing skills

    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.
