    Negative Outlook

    I worked at OSCE full-time

    Pros

    tax-free salaries, location of the headquarters (Secretariat) in one of the world's most beautiful and comfortable cities, 6 weeks of vacation annually

    Cons

    diminishing benefits, probable contraction (i.e. downsizing and redundancies), lack of vision from senior management, high turnover due to the non-career nature, which impairs continuity and institutional memory, infighting with the field offices and other locations, "consensus" decision making, which often leads to paralysis

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at OSCE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    OSCE is the organization where the employee earns good salary. In addition to the salary there is also a good social package provided (includes provident fund and health insurance). It is a multicultural environment organization to work especially for expats.

    Cons

    The OSCE is a non-career organization. Since it deals with politics, security and human rights, sometimes it leads to conflict interest with the hosting countries.
