Interning with HRC

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern

ProsI 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!

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

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

Greatest summer internship I could ask for

Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern for less than a year

ProsIncredible 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.

ConsThe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Awesome Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Human Rights Campaign

ProsThe 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
