    Cons

    NOT BEING PAID
    Costs of living in DC
    Most people are not there to address the issues
    Cutthroat, selfish environment
    Miserable staffers that take out their frustration on powerless interns
    Being screamed at, degraded, and undervalued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a consistent internship program across the House instead of each office setting their own standards.
    PAY INTERNS! At least give them a transportation and living stipend.
    Treat interns as equal human beings not dirt beneath your shoe.
    Remember you once started as an intern!
