    Former Employee - Geography Program in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Geography Program in Washington, DC

    I worked at National Geographic as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -It's Nat Geo.
    -Opportunities to attend symposiums and meet program's explorers. If you like learning about the world, Nat Geo offers some cool weekly opportunities internally.
    -Networking opportunities.
    -In my position, a relative flexible work pace; and room of initiatives.
    -Generally awesome people to work with, HR is mostly responsive in my experience.
    -Green Fridays, you have the option to work remotely or take the day off (well if you don't have any tight deadlines to meet).
    -Willingness of cross-departmental collaboration.
    -The cafeteria and cafe have good stuff at a reasonable price.

    Cons

    -Intern pay is low, but that's sort of expected.
    -Interns are informed about possible extension of their contracts at the eleventh hour, which is why I say to upcoming interns to not have expectations beyond their contracted term.
    -I was quite frustrated at how underwhelming the work pace was, since I was able to finish my assignments faster than they could give it to me.
    -Restructuring is apparently shifting a lot of things around so things may be much different than from what I experienced (i.e. departments becoming consolidated, end of Green Fridays probably, loss of personal offices etc).
    -I was offered a small extension onto my contract but after two weeks waiting after the end of my intern contract I decided to seek a position elsewhere. Again that might have been due to restructuring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The intern had the chance to meet various higher-ups in the organization for advice and feedback, and I'm grateful for that. I wish the program could be more structured and that expectations of the position could be spelled out much clearly at the beginning. Give interns more responsibilities and have higher expectations.
