Disappointing about workplace bullying
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Provincia di Roma, LazioOctober 3, 2017
There are so many wonderful employees in this organization, and they are doing outstanding work. It is so disappointing that the workplace culture in the infrastructure office of the headquarters is toxic beyond belief. Some bullies make life difficult for everyone else. I would never ever want to work in that office again no matter how much I was paid. The African staff are wonderful and they deserve to be supported by better management.
Pros
Staff gym, staff cafeteria, coffee machines, library
Cons

Fun place to work
Admin and Finance Assistant (Former Employee) –  Peshawar,PakistanJune 13, 2017
Always in a constant phase of emergency however the employees take it as normal work life.
Having iftari at office females leaving office late due to heavy work load and some make staff staying overnight in office and working all n8ght is not something that should surprise someone who works for WFP Peshawar office in order to make a difference in lives of those much needed.
