    I worked at Aspen Institute full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to see amazing people speak, great colleagues (well, if you're a young person I wouldn't really know about management), and free food! Some great program directors (if you're lucky enough to work for them).

    Cons

    A lot of your experience depends on the program you work for. Each of the Aspen programs talks about a lot of important issues: healthcare, women in the workplace, yet the institute as a whole struggles to adopt any of these values which makes everything the Institute organizes feel hollow. Very limited maternity leave, mediocre healthcare plan, very little room to grow, especially if you come into an entry level position.

    In general, I feel like the Institute cultivates a very dangerous atmosphere for young people, one that involves a lot of uncertainty and little room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -pay attention to your younger staff, Walter Isaacson is insistent on the entrepreneurial nature of the org but you have to cultivate a much safer atmosphere for entrepreneurship and innovation. Not to mention that encouraging an "entrepreneurial" attitude generally privileges entitled white men. Just saying...
    -practice what the policy programs are teaching other people to do!
