Great opportunities to contribute to Asian development and poverty reduction
Deputy Director General (Former Employee) – Manila, Philippines – February 19, 2018
ADB is a large institution (about 3,000 employees including country offices), with a multicultural environment reflecting ADB's country membership. As compared to other international development agencies, ADB is relatively light in bureaucracy, and has a work culture characterized by team work and cooperation. Staff who demonstrate dedication, technical competence, and strong team work can look forward to increasing professional responsibility. Opportunities for career advancement are generally excellent, but will require flexibility in adapting to the organization's evolving operational priorities and skills-mix needs. The Metro Manila area suffers from the ills of Asia's mega cities (traffic, pollution), but the city also provides world-class opportunities for housing, education, and recreation.
