SMO (Former Employee) –  Uttar PradeshApril 9, 2018
running chasing and satisfaction at the end of the day. Job security is bad and kills the spirit of team. you will learn lot of public health skills like data analysis, advocacy and presentation. great chance to showcase your abilities as a epidemiologist. management is very good. But HR management seems to be not interested in retaining skilled and trained team. High burnout and attrition rates because of long working hours and micromanagement. continuously on firefighting mode.
Pros
professionalism
Cons
long working hours and continuous war footing

Fantastic workplace
Regional Administration and Finance Officer (Former Employee) –  Pune, MaharashtraMay 15, 2017
WHO was a dream job at any time. The job provided me opportunities in plenty and enabled me to lead 38 non-technical personnel across 4 states in Western India.

I could introduce many new operations systems to facilitate the operations of the states offices, which were ratified by the India Regional Office.

It is an honor to be even associated with WHO, the last few months have been very rewarding for me. I have learnt the value of evidence based decision making for advocacy and policy making purpose here. The work culture is very good, everyone is highly cooperative and is always ready to offer a helping hand. The value of team work at WHO is exemplary. The passion that drives the employees at WHO is inspiring as well and has motivated me to do any job at hand with my heart and soul soaked in it.

Exemplary International Organization.
Regional Team Leader-West (Retd) (Former Employee) –  Pune, MaharashtraNovember 22, 2016
A typical day at work was very encouraging and the day ended with so many new challenges addressed as well as to be addressed. Very encouraging and open work culture and flexibility of work time/schedule. Interacting with people at various cadres: from Chief Minister-Health Minister-Principal Secretary-Director Health services to district officials, including district magistrates to grass-root level workers like Angan Wadi and ASHA.
Public health demands managing program and managing people: More challenging is managing PEOPLE. I did it well!
Hardship is an integral part of public health job in WHO. Demanding geographical terrains in Bihar and North East are learning experiences.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see a smile on the face of the parents in Kosi riverine villages in Bihar, when their children receive any vaccine for the first time in their life. This made my day.
Pros
Happy work culture.
