It is good to work there because it can help you to build your confidence and cooperation. But it's hard for me because sometimes your respondent didn't allowed you to interview.

Working with UNDP is very uplifting because you work with the grassroots, personally it makes me grounded...professionally it made me more knowledgeable in terms of my field as a water supply engineer...you work with people from all walks of life ..and made me understand people empowerment..project management with different stakeholders.It enchance my capabiltiy to resolve field issues concerning project implementation at the community level. Project implementation with different stakeholders is very complicated especially if you are dealing with politicians as they always want to implement the project with their own political interests but it is also very challenging because you have to use your communication skills to let them know the right way to implement projects which in accordance with the governing laws and limitations. UNDP management is very pro employee, they always see to it that their employees are safe and well compensated. The hardest part of my jod in UNDP is when you are trying to implement the project with a lot of restrictions like procurement which sometime can hinder the progress of the project implementation. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you were able to complete the project implementation in accordance to approved timelines even if there are problems but have some lessons learned.
Pros
free snacks/lunch
Cons
short breaks

I enjoyed most of the job implementation from the coordination with the different Humanitarian Organizations, Provincial, City and Barangay local government units, I learned to make activity designs for project implementation. I learned to adjust to the different cultures of my colleagues both foreign and local, The hardest part of the job was to exactly know how much funding is available for the project implementation and the procurement process which takes a long time for the processing.
Pros
The daily subsidy allowance when we travel and have overnight missions
Cons
The procurement process which takes a long period to be actuaize.
