    I have been working at IMF full-time


    You can see and work with highly educated and talented people from across the globe - staff from 100+ countries.

    Diversity is highly valued and it is amazing how people work well together.


    Career advancement is very slow. While the benefits are very good, pay increases are low and promotions are quite rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring and promotions vary widely from one department to other. Maintain consistent practices.
