I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, ability to work remotely, good location, special federal hiring status after 3 years of employment, great mission, fun Peace Corps Third Goal activities throughout year.

Cons

Five-year rule causes too much turn over, you need to be looking for a new job when you walk in the door. No diversity in experience or skills, no child care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the five year rule and just make everyone up for reappointment every 5 years. Clear out the old be keep the good.

    Great place to intern

    I worked at Peace Corps

    Pros

    Interned with a fun, young team. Friendly environment and great location. Work with a lot of returned Peace Corps volunteers so everyone has stories to share.

    Cons

    Day-to-day tasks for interns tended to be repetitive. Would have been nice to work on larger projects. Although not a problem for interns, the turnover rate is high due to office policy so don't expect to stay for the long-term.
