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.

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than an 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 (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.
