The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nations' global development network. It advocates for change and connects countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life for themselves. It provides expert advice, training and grants support to developing countries, with increasing emphasis on assistance to the least developed countries. It promotes technical and investment cooperation among nations.
Great people and company values are good. Salary and bonuses are ok once you move into leadership positions. Corporate organizational model is very different than more traditional models and hard to navigate. Takes a long time to get to understand how the business works.
Since my duty station was Ministry of Finance and not UNDP per se,my review pertains to the experience at the Ministry. We were hired by the UNDP as consultants to assist the Government of India in developing India's position on various G20 issues. The work culture was that of government ministry and not UNDP. I gained a lot of experience of dealing with various national and international organizations and engaging in issues for international negotiations. Though, UNDP's involvement in our professional experience at the behest of senior government officers would have been appreciated.
My internship with UNDP was a great learning experience as it opened the gateway of my interests in the development sector. The work-life balance and job culture was amazing and my regional head was always a supportive and guiding figure.
Nice place to work, rigorous job, a place much to learn from. Very supportive staff and i thoroughly enjoyed working here. They are under construction right now so not hiring any new staff as of now but i would love to work here again.
Free travelling and stays for out station field visits
Working for UNDP program at Railways and coordinating with various stakeholders is a great experience
Working for UNDP program at Indian Railways and coordinating with various stakeholders is a great experience. Interacting with top executives of various industry and help railways understand industry needs is always a big challenge.
It pays really well across levels.You also get to do some meaningful work in global development. However, there is no job security. They usually hire professionals for a specific project and a project has a certain life, beyond which staff is not required. However, if you are in Delhi, you may be absorbed in some other project but that's not certain. And in case you are in some other city and there is no live project, you have no option but to pack bags after project closure. But as they pay well, it doesn't hurt much.
Great Salary, Experience
No job stability
Its a great experience to work under UNDP with such a wonderful team.Learned how to organise an event, finalize venue keeping in mind the company norms. I can take the responsibility of all the administrative works and accomplish them within the time frame given.I have to travel various places of Assam very frequently which is the hardest part of the job. But it is also quite enjoyable as I can see new places and meet new people.
