It's really idealistic

It's a really idealistic organization that has some real institutional problems. The people who serve the organization are saints, but as it presently stands the U.N. is largely staffed by the wealth in it's upper echelons and by the poor on its lower rungs.

Interesting but exhausting

The United Nations is a big International Organization. I personally worked as an intern for the Permanent Mission of Greece to the United Nations so my experience has more to do with diplomatic service rather than the Administration of the UN.

Very professional people and clean workingplace

Ever since my contract with the UN ended, I've been wanting to work there again at any UN agency. It is very difficult to get a position in such a big international organization.

Pros

Very good retirement!!!

Cons

Hard to get a full-time and permanent position

I learn empathy

When I start volunteering at UN, I became aware of problems in the world. My eyes open to places I would never know. Importantly, I learn how I can reduce these problems by mapping. I keep cooperating with UN to help others because It also helps me feels good.

I like security guard work because it needs too much attention to details as will as wisdom patience mental and physical alertness

a typical day is a day when I reach my work site a little bit earlier to have some time to discuss with my college in the previous shift about the problems that I may face, Smoothly solve any problem may appear, learn something new from senior co-workers, manage all situations properly and in safe way, The hardest and most enjoyable part in security guard job is the ability to protect the property of the employer with involving my self in the risk.

Pros

none

Cons

interesting and much joy
