The Jobs are good and the salary range is also better. The projects tend to polish your skills and mostly consultant jobs are well paying off. there is a delay in the payment if you are on a contract but otherwise learning is great.

Not an ideal place to work but lots of different on-going projects provided opportunities to learn and grow. No structured processes and lack of collaboration with other employees due to infrastructure issues resulted in delays.

The targets are set by the World Bank for each years, these are called disbursement linked indicators. It is a governance improvement project. The main thrust was to introduce technology and Management Information systems in the public sector. For this the baseline and existing system were studied and change was introduced in a systematic manner. The city entities were initially reluctant but agreed to implement the proposed systems. Proper guidance and SOPs were provided to City entities. Regular followup and on job training are being provided to the employees.
Pros
work life balance, High pay, annual dinners, understanding of the development challenges of Pakistan
Cons
short term contractual appointments, No gratuity

I worked for 6 months and i receive my salary after 1 year so how can you be satisfied where you can't get your salary at time.. so there i worked hard you can learn more where you get more work. therefore one good part of that organization is you can learn more butt there is some problem with your pay so i leave that company.

The best part of my job was the diversity of work and cross functionality it required. It was no ordinary business development job but required 360 degree input, conducting negotiations of business proposals with leaders from the industry and various government establishment. The work culture could have been better provided better provided the company invested in employee development.
Pros
Exposure to work on Infrastructure Development Project
Cons
Under developed work culture

We have different departments which are further divided into different teams. I work as a GIS Developer so i comes under GIS web development. We start nice and early at 9 A.M. Day starts with checking email and looking for updates on assigned tasks or continuing the previous task to meet deadline. Tasks varies and they are very interesting and challenging most of the time. Usually we take a cup of tea 11AM and then back to work - (converting caffeine into programming code). We have office mess hall where food is cooked and served by waiters and starts at 1PM to 1.30PM We have many discussion sessions and meetings for different projects time to time. we have workshops and trainings as well on monthly basis. we finish by 5PM. Many leave office while other finishing their tasks or exploring the new tech. we work extra hours till midnight or the whole night in emergency situations like in flood 2014. We go on official trips occasionally which is fun time.
