The Organisation is full of unhealthy working climate, obviously lots depends on the unit, but in general the management is old fashioned,very hierarchical, applying micromanagement as a main tool, and with no respect for lower position tenders. The personal interest of a number of managers are put higher than the Organisation's needs. Very disappointing, knowing the history and initial purpose of the creation of WHO.
Pros
Salary, benefits, medicine knowledge (in the according departments)
Cons
Unhealthy emotional climate, disrespectful treatment, long years for career growth, low web culture and technical development

I worked with WHO on SPECIAL SERVICE AGREEMENT (SSA) and was relieved of my job due to polio virus eradication in Nigeria. Thete is no fund to maintain staff under polio eradication program. I really contributed to this historic achievement. WHO has achieved more in providing health for all around the globe and it need to be funded adequately in order to achieve more.
Pros
Salary is commiserate and is paid in time, Working environment is conducive with computers and cellphones to aid the work
Cons
No staff development programme in terms of training either locally or internationally
