    I worked at OSCE

    Pros

    For those who work in the east, you are really along the front line. The situation is quite similar to a UN military observer mission. There is a decent amount of leave. Board and lodging allowance [BLA] is comparable to UN mission subsistence allowance [MSA]

    Cons

    Most people are on seconded contracts, so their overall salary and benefits depend greatly on their national governments. Some countries pay nothing but the BLA is much more than the average salary at home and the BLA goes a long way for them. Some countries pay the equivalent to what a civil servant, diplomat or police officer would make. Indeed, they may be seconding such people. Others, like Canada, pay a small...

    I worked at OSCE full-time

    Pros

    Compelling work on human rights, effective government, and other factors that contribute to human security. Great multicultural mix of colleagues.

    Cons

    No long-term opportunities because of 10 year term limit. No pension or family benefits for seconded staff working in field operations.

    Advice to Management

    Regularizing your human resource base, perhaps extending term limit to 20 years would enable OSCE to maximize the productivity of its most capable staff, who under the current structure are forced to leave the organization at the peak of their effectiveness.

    I worked at OSCE full-time

    Pros

    Professional, open, good salaries and packages included, a place and people to learn from.

    Cons

    Sometimes too strict, in some countries do not pay for local employees' state benefits (pension fund/social security)
