Oppurtunity got Global learning and influencing local Government policy productively

The Job is of the great responsibility of keeping track of the loan amount being spent correctly for the purpose it is assigned. Time to time thorough review of the system with the Government to assess that the support operations are making the desired impact to the program and also strengthening system for sustainability in long term

A place where learning has no ends

In World Bank work is of days which can be broken into hour of pure work and then proceed to finish your days (each day being 8 hours) give account for the same and claim reimbursements (for Consultants) Hard to find men who are recruited on permanent post including country head.

Good salary!

Neither a good place to work nor a bad place. Presence of usual corporate politics shouldn't surprise you! Peers are friendly in nature, which is exactly opposite to that of the management.

Quiet and slow paced

A typical day at work is Quiet & slow paced but becomes stressful as the day ends. I have learnt many things about team management, systems development and third party management. The management is mostly reactive. The culture is give respect, be inclusive, integral and accountable. The hardest part of the job is get collaboration. The enjoyable part is opportunities to learn and reform

I felt like working at government office which has no productivity work and learning. Brahmin dominated office

A place where brahmins can survive for longer period with no torcher from management.People who wishes to just sit and lay eggs on their seat with no learning and doing unproductive work are welcomed to join there. Generally, corporate is meant to be politics , but I haven't come across such politics issue in my working experience of 7.5years. More incapable employees are been recruited which affects the normal employees work life balance. Incapable people's work are been loaded to non brahmin people and they are targeted of job in security if they just open a word against management. No advanced learning and ladder for encouragement. They encourage you to study professional courses but still we can't expect any promotion for a maximum period of 7 years ( provided if your pet to management) if not, you can never imagine for promotion in your lifetime.

Pros

Competitive salary, perks and benefits which any company cant providee

Cons

Caste discrimination, Management politics, No learning, no work life balance, no cabs inspite of working late at night, no safety for female employee's

Used to be a good and fair international organization

Great Intellectual environment - In any given day the bank has events going on a several topics. The speakers in some of these events are exceptionally high profile. Such a rich intellectual environment is unparalleled even in the most prestigious universities in the World.

Creative work

As a sub-project manager of World Bank-funded subprojects- TSIDP, I enjoyed the work. Because I developed the project proposal by myself and managed it efficiently. Under this project, I developed research facilities in Jagannath University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Besides that, I also renovated the Marketing department of Jagannath University with modern amenities. Those works, delineated above, was innovative work which I enjoyed. From the project, I learned how to manage a project and how to maintain the files such as Cash book, ledger, Petty Cash, assets Register and procurement documents.

Pros

Fllixibile works with huge resposnibility

Cons

Manageing the pressure of external people was the main disadvantage.

Pros

Located centrally in the city

Cons

Self motivation to learn is required for a beginner
