"Excellent place to work. Staff are diverse from all parts of the world. I was employed there for 20 years and enjoyed it mostly. Like any other job, there are some ups and downs, but it was mostly favorable for me. I recommend the World Bank for prospective candidates."

"The World Bank is an interesting place. It has always been very political and right now is going under a big reorganization. You only get in if you know someone. The pay is good, but somehow they don't know how to keep employees, and they let bosses treat employees any way they want."
