good
Internship (Former Employee) –  New Delhi, DelhiNovember 4, 2019
Great people and company values are good. Salary and bonuses are ok once you move into leadership positions. Corporate organizational model is very different than more traditional models and hard to navigate. Takes a long time to get to understand how the business works.

Great exposure to international negotiations and policy research
Programme Executive (Former Employee) –  New Delhi, IndiaOctober 12, 2018
Since my duty station was Ministry of Finance and not UNDP per se,my review pertains to the experience at the Ministry. We were hired by the UNDP as consultants to assist the Government of India in developing India's position on various G20 issues. The work culture was that of government ministry and not UNDP. I gained a lot of experience of dealing with various national and international organizations and engaging in issues for international negotiations. Though, UNDP's involvement in our professional experience at the behest of senior government officers would have been appreciated.

Good place to embellish your CV and get well paid
Technical Expert (Former Employee) –  Lucknow, Uttar PradeshMay 1, 2017
It pays really well across levels.You also get to do some meaningful work in global development.
However, there is no job security. They usually hire professionals for a specific project and a project has a certain life, beyond which staff is not required. However, if you are in Delhi, you may be absorbed in some other project but that's not certain. And in case you are in some other city and there is no live project, you have no option but to pack bags after project closure. But as they pay well, it doesn't hurt much.
Pros
Great Salary, Experience
Cons
No job stability
