i gained alot of knowledge in world bank it was a good workplace they also focus on employee healthy activity, they focus on employee retention so employees will not bore from their job. the bad thing in this organization is if a person is hire as a assistant his or her career will only stuck in to junior assistant to senior assistant which i think is the bad thing

It is good to have exposure to new challenges every time and a great opportunity to keep polishing skills, however, the lack of career for consultant is a pain point which creates demotivation especially for married people.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
No fixed monthly income

I have been working at World Bank Group full-time.Great colleagues. Interestingly, meaningful work. Wonderful opportunity to influence policy to make positive change for vulnerable groups. Nice onsite gym and cafeteria!

Lots of travel and can have impacts on personal relationship/family. Lateral movements across the organization seem harder than they used to be. A lot of TA/DA every month.


Workplace culture is very lovely and no harassment. The people are working very peacefully, calm and quite.


I havn't faced any hardest part of the job while working with WB.
Pros
The tea is served fee and lunch is served on 50% subsidy basis. Very cheap.
Cons
Yes, one can have break when he likes and also there are health care facilities are available.

A typical day for the project involved a lot of travelling within different cities of Pakistan.

At this project I learnt how to work during travelling which was a major shortcoming in me before. I learnt how to manage and deal different private and public sector stakeholders dealing with the education sector of Pakistan. The interviews revolved around Senior and Mid Senior level officers, and I learnt how to talk swiftly with them getting all the information that I ever wanted.


Co workers were mostly from good education backgrounds, typically ranging from Harvard, Columbia and LUMS. So i got a first hand experience talking to them about their views about Pakistani education system, and what system is followed elsewhere.
Pros
Salary was good
Cons
Lot of travelling
