Pros

Diversity. You get to meet people from all across the united states. This makes the work place such an enjoyable place. Opportunities for international travel to field offices is also a benefit of working at Peace Corps.

Cons

Some people are lazy, especially in the field offices. They give the peace corps such a bad name. The organisation should filter out volunteers without a strong sense of purpose. This will improve the image of the organisation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

increase diversity of the recruits

    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.

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