one of world's largest development agencies
Principal Adviser, and Deputy Director, (Former Employee) –  New York, New YorkApril 7, 2015
I joined UNDP in 1988 from the research firm RTI International where was Senior Research Psychologist. My position at UNDP required extensive international travel, and substantive backstopping of around half a billion dollars of development programming in all world regions. UNDP had a management web in over 170 countries, and was usually the primary UN agency in each of these countries.Headquartered in New York City in the UN complex, this agency has a talented national and international staff today of around 16,000. More info can be found at http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/operations/about_us/frequently_askedquestions.html

My own view of UNDP nets out as positive, although I have been an adviser to many young staff members at HQ and in the field who have expressed concerns re its HR functions, especially as these policies relate to staff benefits and job security. Few however doubt the capacity of UNDP to bring together world-class talent in the design and implementation of development programs in any sector, or its long experience in these fields. I think UNDP, despite its problems, is the core agency in UN development work, and I have immense respect for what it attempts to do in some of the world's most difficult arenas.
Pros
amazing, talented professional staff, exciting work, and stimulating environments
Cons
complex cross-cultural management issues in a fast changing and international field

Community Development Supervisor
Unit In-charge-Community Development Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Azad Kashmir-AJKSeptember 21, 2014
Meeting at Government Line Departments when we tried to work together but without project approved. GLDs refused to work in the absence of project approval.
Tried to make relationship with Poultry, Agriculture, and livestock departments to serve community in the absence of project.
While managing lower staff of GLDs it was difficult to get things done without any financial support.
A full year without official project it was hard time to live among the communities.
Government line departments arranged beautiful shows to create awareness to plant trees, save livestock through heath care, preserve jungle by stopping free grazing and income generation through mobilizing credit and savings.
Pros
dsas
Cons
earned leaves encashments after each year ended

Lets take a closer look
Various Positions (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 29, 2014
First UNDP is a very cool place to work if you land in the right place. Second all of these reviews are in the last year or two. That should be the first hint of something not-all-right. The third thing is half of them are fake. Avoided Management starting from the D's.
Pros
lots of different people
Cons
lots of different people, management = former hippies/spanish majors turned financial managers, losing money.
