I worked at Peace Corps full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working for the Peace Corps gives you the opportunity to gain valuable experience working internationally as well as proficiency in another language. The flexibility in working hours and ability to determine the focus of my work were major benefits. The job also gives you a sense of contributing to society.

Cons

After gaining perspective from two years of working and living in another country, the value of individual projects may seem diminished in the context of the developmental progress of the country as a whole. There was frustration over the instability of job and projects

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

    Pros

    Working with professionals
    Always something to do to help
    Fun people and pretty girls
    Good food and other activities always coming along

    Cons

    Having to be all spiffy when the front office arrives; really not a bad thing but need to get two twenty words.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of the way: do not think for it will weaken the team. Send all the bullies packing straight away.
