    Great people doing great work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe open workplace facilitated employees getting to know one another. Everyone was always making sure that I was getting the work I expected and willing to train me in new tasks. Received very helpful career advice

    ConsSuperiors were great, fellow interns took themselves a little too seriously and were very unprofessional.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A good place to intern, depending on the department

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsUN Foundation has a lot going for it in terms of the intern experiece:
    Many opportunities to make substantive contributions.
    Variety of projects
    Company/Intern Bonding and Service Projects
    Good connections, friendly and supportive colleagues.
    PAID!

    ConsVery top-down structure, especially in decision making. Employee vs. Executive vision occasionally seemed to clash.
    Corporate atmosphere, especially for a non-profit

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a more watchful eye on organizational culture.

    Working here is nothing short of a pleasure

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's an amazing work environment filled with passionate and supportive people. I consider myself very lucky to get to work in a place that provides so much to their employees.

    ConsThis foundation is very busy changing the world for the better and so the office is constantly busy and is incredibly fast paced. While I enjoy this aspect of it, I'm sure other people may not be able to keep up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're great!

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