Team work with the aim of producing results
Radio Operator (Former Employee), GhanaFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: never look at time when working
Cons: no break or short breaks
A typical day at work is from 7:30 am to 12:30 with 1:45 minutes break, dealing with huge volumes of emails and proposing responses. I have learnt to be very patience and paying attention to details. In terms of management, this is done in consultation with my boss in regards to schedules, appointments and deadlines to respect. Co-works were very pleasant – more... and ready to help. There was nothing hard about the work expect when you have to prepare missions within 48 hours without having all the information at hand. The most enjoyable part is to get to know people and also get to used to multi tasks. – less

High dynamic work environment
Procurement Assistant (Former Employee), Jerusalem, Palestinian Occupied TerritoriesNovember 15, 2013
This was a very active and sensitive work, we had to respond quickly to urgent needs for hospitals and clinics, this required high accuracy, complete bidding, prompt deadlines to be met. The relations with the co-workers was fantastic, actually it was a strong requirement for job completion, beside have some fun, lunch together and some jokes here and – more... there. The hardest about this job was responding to urgency in a very limited time, very high pressure mentally and physically. The best part that really made us happy, really happy was when we deliver the urgent items, specially medications and medical equipment to hospitals. – less

great place to work with employees of World Health Organization from around the world. Good experience and exposure.
Human Resources Analyst (Former Employee), MalaysiaNovember 6, 2013
Pros: great benefit
Every day i look forward to walk into WHO office. I make sure my work is completed before i leave my desk in the evenings. So when i come in the office i will start assigning daily task for my subordinates and look into the emails and respond to them on timely manner.
Prioritize my work has become a no. 1 task as everything in this organization is urgent. – more... i have learned a lot from this organization as sometime in United Nations office we have emergency situation arise throughout the world. Regardless of time we have to prepare the employee to move or relocate to the emergency situation by preparing the necessaries irregardless within the same country or overseas.
The co-workers are from diverse background. They are very friendly and a great team player.
The hardest part of the job is were at times we have to communicate with some staff which is not in the office and is on field duty for some hazardous duty station we are not able to reach them to convey the message as they might have limited resources of communication but nevertheless we have always find a solution to all of this.
The most enjoyable part of this job is the people around you who i work with and work for. Its a great team and i really enjoyed working here. – less
