    Pros

    Le siège est relativement petit et l'ambiance est très sympathique, essentiellement entre membres du personnel de IUCN mais aussi celui de sociétés hôtes comme Ramsar.

    Le niveau d'expertise est très élevé et il n'y a rien de mieux que de travailler avec une bonne équipe.

    Cons

    Il n'y a pas beaucoup d'opportunités de carrière au sein de IUCN.

    Advice to Management

    Améliorez les interactions entre les services.
