  1.  

    Fantastic summer internship program.

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, phenomenal educational opportunities, generally has an open-door culture. The program focuses on professional development in a way that few other internships do. Enjoyed the mentoring aspect.

    Cons

    Like any other internship, it is what you make it. No stipend, so not a place to work unless you're actually passionate about the issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Consider adding a stipend to make the program more competitive with other internships in the progressive D.C. circle.

    Interning with HRC

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

    Pros

    I think the atmosphere at HRC is amazing. The people are really nice and there's no one with a superiority complex. We have a lot of help available to us as interns and people are always eager to answer any questions you have. You learn a lot about the LGBT movement and its history. The brownbag luncheons were really informative. They also feed you really great food!

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid and our travel stipends were really meager, which makes it a bit difficult to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it may not be possible to pay interns, but please think about raising the amount you give interns for the travel stipend.

    I have been working at Human Rights Campaign part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, atmostphere, great communication among employees and management, pretty good benefits early in career, somewhat immune to economic flucuations

    Cons

    Seasonal, somewhat limited room for advancement, there are a few bad employees, some of whom are gatekeepers, but there are workarounds

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply the rules to everyone, monitor hours a little more closely

    Pros

    Incredible staff who want to hear your opinions, even if you are on the low end of the totem pole. They do awesome work, both politically and through their foundation, and are pushing to include more and more people in the fight for LGBT equality.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid, which made it hard financially, but it was certainly extremely educational and worth more than what I pay for a semester of college.

    I worked at Human Rights Campaign

    Pros

    The Human Rights Campaign is truly an amazing place to work. The environment is one of "work hard, play hard", everyone is very goal driven and passionate about the their work.

    Cons

    It's a smaller office which can provide some downsides. Additionally, as a nonprofit it can sometimes run in to resource constraints, however every attempt is made to fully utilize all resources available in an efficient manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stretch the boundaries and reach for the impossible. The work you do is incredibly important, keep it up.
