Stressful Environment of Office of Budget Analysis

Office Assistant (Former Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

I worked at Peace Corps as an intern for less than a year

Pros-Work with lots of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who are passionate about their experiences, and always have a good story to tell.
-Some cool special events and guest speakers from local and international government officials.

Cons-Extremely stressful government position dealing with possible furloughs and constantly shrinking budget
-Stale environment on financial floor

Advice to Senior ManagementOther offices seem to have a lot more fun, but in OBA it was extremely boring, uninteresting and stressful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

"Life-changing experience. Highly recommended for those with interest"

Protected Areas Management Volunteer (Former Employee)

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


Pros: Deeper understanding of what normal life is in other countries than you can get in any development… Cons: No structure--everything depends on what the community wants to do, so sometimes you don't… Advice to Senior Management: More project management training would be very beneficial. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
