Great place to intern

I worked at Peace Corps

Pros

Interned with a fun, young team. Friendly environment and great location. Work with a lot of returned Peace Corps volunteers so everyone has stories to share.

Cons

Day-to-day tasks for interns tended to be repetitive. Would have been nice to work on larger projects. Although not a problem for interns, the turnover rate is high due to office policy so don't expect to stay for the long-term.

    Pros

    Learn a new language, live in a new culture, be challenged to solve problems in ways you never expected. Service in a small village in southern Mali, but Glassdoor doesn't even have Bamako as an option for location.

    Cons

    It can be lonely. There will be challenges: communication, plumbing, and transportation come to mind.

  2. Mexico is a step away from Paradise

    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 Management

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