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

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.

Physically and Mentally Demanding Workplace
Surveillance Medial Officer(SMO) (Current Employee) –  Noida, Uttar PradeshMarch 19, 2017
A typical day at work- Being a SMO, my job profile is doing advocacy and supporting the district in surveillance activities(Vaccine Preventable Disease Surveillance), strengthening of routine immunization activities, pulse polio immunization activities, supporting district in newer vaccines launch & roll out.

Learning-My profile as SMO has helped me grow as a public health professional.I have learned doing data analysis and advocacy with the analysed data with the district health officials for strengthening of various program indicators.My profile has given me the opportunity to working as a team with different WHO colleagues working in the district as well as working as a team with partner agencies with predefined role and responsibility of each partner agency.

Management-I am overall responsible for my team comprising of an Administrative Assistant, Drivers and Field Monitors.

Workplace Culture-It is good as you are part of a small WHO family in the district.

Hardest Part of Job- When the data based feedback is not taken positively by the district health department.

Most Enjoyable part of Job-When the suggestions for strengthening of health indicators are acknowledged and implemented by the district administration.
Pros
Appreciation of your work by the District eg. by District Magistrate
Cons
Monotonous Job, Long working Hours, Difficulty in Work Life Balance

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.
