    I worked at Center for Strategic and International Studies

    Pros

    Learn a lot
    Increase research abilities
    Good for networking

    Cons

    No long term prospects
    Depends what program you work for as to how much you'll enjoy it and learn

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is stretched thin and on the whole don't have time for junior staff

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Center for Strategic and International Studies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Brilliant research directors, fantastic network opportunities, and unparalleled exposure to the foreign affairs community.

    Cons

    Shortsighted management, lack of institutional support for projects and implementation, terrible salaries with little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a medium-term career track for mid level employees, take reviews seriously, and think about how to manage down as well as up.
