The ADB in Pakistan is situated in a luxurious hotel where a number of diplomatic activities occur everyday. Working in ADB was a new experience every day. It has great working environment, almost like a utopia of professionals.
One of the greatest things about working there was that this provided a multi cultural environment, as i was working on a project which had professionals from 40 different countries. Plus there is a lot of interaction with UN agencies, European Union, diplomats from other countries and with World bank. It is important work however and one has to keep a serious focus on things developing regarding the projects and activities. A great place to make contacts and career growth.
The downside is that the contracts don't last too long. projects are rolled back due to political issues etc.
Working directly with ADB gave me immense experience in management of the project with Govt. of Odisha. This provide me the experience in cordination with Govt. agencies to take up the activities forward and overcome the hindrances from the Goverment officials. We have to have lot of patience while working with bilateral projects. Team management and dealing with senior officials is a big challange and once it is managed, it will help in gaining the confidence within.
