transport and logistics police officer (Former Employee) – juba – June 22, 2017
every day is a learning process and challenges make people stronger. Respect for diversity respect for human rights should be the daily guidelines meeting and making new friends all over the world learning on security issues was more important and experience on various fields
Dock Master (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 18, 2017
As one might imagine, this place is all about security. It's most important to operate by the book here. Even though it's not constantly busy, work often comes in larger waves & you may find weekly overtime opportunities depending on your department. The Supervisors I have met are dedicated, smart & hard working people who only want the best for our operations. The hardest part of the job is acclimating to procedure. Also, as expected, the commute can be a drag for those who aren't local. Best part of the job can be the people you will meet in your travels.
This organization never go out these mission to support refugees, great organization to work for.
Cultural Relations Manager (Former Employee) – Kasulu, Tanzania / Refugees camp – June 11, 2017
I worked with this humanitarian organization for at least five years as a compound workers supervisor, and cultural manager to support refugees and humanitarian's staff, to translate french and Kiswahili language. It is the best organization with mission to protect people whom have non hope to survive and give them hope. The staff worked hard night to day to support refugees and protect them, in accordance with international law supporting refugees.
Every day was unpredictable in terms of secutiry situation at the time. We learned to take each day as it comes fostering efforts for peace building
Military Liaison Officer (Former Employee) – DARFUR, SUDAN – June 6, 2017
Interesting enviroment to work in with people from different nations and in a war zone. Management of unated nations was superb promoting accontability and transparence. Every member of the team in the mission area was prifvy to all necessary information happening in the mission area regarding security, welfare and the like. Hardest part was relizing that the working enviroment was a war zone and security challenges are real almost always.
Good interactions with people from different nations and cultures
Living the obvious challenge of unstable war situation, But manageable
Program Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 29, 2017
The United Nations is a unique working environment on so many levels: philosophically, culturally, the nature of the work, and the differences in the people that work there. It provides an opportunity to do humanitarian work globally to bring about change to peoples in need, with the goal of improving the quality of life for humanity.
The international exposure.
Understanding the nuances of the various cultures.
they need to implement fun games at work, there is none at present
Desktop Support Technician II (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 23, 2017
It is a very stressful place to work and some people working as consultants are not professionals at all. Managers are not having enough supervision over the supervisors handling employees. Cursing words fly in the IT department like nothing.
Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 29, 2017
What you can expect: multi-cultural working environment, opportunities to attend kinds of meetings and meet professionals from all walks of life. I was lucky that I met an excellent supervisor from whom I learned a lot.
Ambassador at the UN is excellent job. Compensation & benefits, a function country's national policies.
Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Palau (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 28, 2017
Work as Ambassador at the United Nations is excellent. The challenges and job satisfaction are excellent. The ratings above are related to the employer which is the Government of Palau. Because the job is a political appointment, job security is not guaranteed. The compensation and benefits are commensurate with a developing country Public Service Commission policy. The work at the UN is 24/7. Working at multilateral levels is always challenging, takes lot of diplomacy and patience. One has to adjust to the culture of multinational advocacy, multiethnic tolerance and joy of diversity. The hardest part of the job is balancing between ethical/spiritual convictions and achieving consensus towards global good. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and making friends with the people from all walks of life, from all countries. Yes, I believe being an ambassador at the UN is one of the most exciting jobs a person can have.
Meeting diverse diplomats in meetings and receptions as a representative of your country.
Slow process (rhetoric nature) of getting things done.
CHIEF, PEACEKEEPING FINANCE DIVISION (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 8, 2017
Excellent place to work if you are interesting in international non-profit environment with emphasis on cultural diversity, respect for diversity, integrity, team work. Areas of focus include humanitarian, peacekeeping, oversight, human rights, international affairs.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 16, 2017
This position was one in all. It invloved server administration tasks, management tasks and application development majorly. Hence, a great experience of a complete life cycle of an application development. The most difficult part was me being the only developer on the team but that made my skill set enhance faster and greater.
Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 11, 2017
People here are highly intelligent and motivated to work hard for the good of everyone. You will not find a more diverse workplace anywhere else. There is definitely a lack of job security here, however. You may not know if you will have your contract extended even a week before your contract is up. Also consultants do not get health insurance and will need to pay for it privately, and do not get access to many of the services that staff get (library book checkout, language classes, different entrance, cannot access many of the areas of the UN). If you are ok with the uncertainty and benefits (or lack thereof) then it is definitely the place to be.
