I worked at International Medical Corps as an intern for less than a yearPros
The department where I worked, as well as my direct supervisors and coworkers both in LA and DC were great, however, my interactions with other departments although limited left a bad taste in my mouth. The work was challenging and rewarding. I really enjoyed my time here as an intern.Cons
Internships are unpaid. I'm not sure about the legality of this, but from the workload that I received, a small stipend would've at least been appreciated. However, the do reimburse you if you choose to take public transportation.
During my time as an intern, nothing was really done to welcome us interns as a group. If you aren't the kind of person who seeks out friendships in the work setting, it's easy to not know the other interns and coworkers if you don't work in the same department. The office environment is super cliquey. People talk about one another behind each other's backs like it's nothing, which in my opinion ruins work morale and turns coworkers who should be working together, against each other and causes unnecessary competition. A welcome event for interns would be helpful, as well as a weekly/bi-weekly meeting in which all the interns get together and discuss what's been happening in their respective departments, new ideas, etc.
Overall, It's a good place to work and have on a resume, get in, work towards getting a good recommendation and quickly get out.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Bring in fresh, new employees to initiate change. Policies are way outdated and should reflect the society in which we live in 2014, not the society that existed when the charity began in the 80's.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
