Sub-Project Manager of TSIDP sub-project (Former Employee) –  Department of Marketing, Jagannath UniversityOctober 17, 2018
As a sub-project manager of World Bank-funded subprojects- TSIDP, I enjoyed the work. Because I developed the project proposal by myself and managed it efficiently. Under this project, I developed research facilities in Jagannath University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Besides that, I also renovated the Marketing department of Jagannath University with modern amenities. Those works, delineated above, was innovative work which I enjoyed. From the project, I learned how to manage a project and how to maintain the files such as Cash book, ledger, Petty Cash, assets Register and procurement documents.
Pros
Fllixibile works with huge resposnibility
Cons
Manageing the pressure of external people was the main disadvantage.

Hectic Work with Same Routine
Internship (Former Employee) –  PunjabJanuary 18, 2018
As an intern, I used to go out to cities located around Lahore (where the HQ was located) and carried out the same routine check-ups of the clinics (BHU's) and reported numbers and figures to my superiors, who eventually made a report and sent it to the World Bank via PSPPU to gather funds to alleviate the deteriorating conditions of the medical clinics in Paksitan.
Pros
Get to meet new people everyday
Cons
Always travelling to cities and carrying out same routine check ups

Very good work culture
Consultant (Current Employee) –  BiharAugust 4, 2016
World Bank has very good HR policy. They always give the opportunity to explore yourself in a upward position. The hardest part of the job if you are a consultant is you have to deliver the assigned work on time.
If anybody is self motivated for working in the development sector, this would a best place to work.
