    Current Contractor - Research Assistant

    I have been working at IMF as a contractor (more than a year)


    Lots of learning opportunities. Great responsibilities. Few benefits.


    Too much bureaucracy. Hard to have a work-life balance. Little career advancement opportunities for younger staff.
    High staff turnover.

They want to see how you come across, how articulatte and knowledgeable you are.
