      Pros

      Awesome benefits, great colleagues, lots of opportunity for travel and gaining experiences. Excellent training and inter-agency opportunities. Support by co-workers is outstanding and HR team is great.

      Cons

      Management is poorly organized and provides little support and direction. Politics as well as nationality play too a heavy role in the way management leads the organization. Efforts to improve national balance and gender balance trump the ability to deliver results.

      Pros

      It is a global organization advancing development in more than 156 countries. It allows you to work on very different thematic, in different regions with colleagues from all over the world. UNDP is like a big family and staff are usually pretty laid back and nice.

      Cons

      No continuous appointment and too many colleagues on precarious contractual modalities. Experience may widely differ across team. Low supervision.
