    I worked at Americas Society/Council of the Americas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good stepping stone, amazing benefits and 401k. Summer Fridays during the month of August.

    Cons

    The salaries are meager and there are some very shady characters and situations -e.g. most of the funds and attention go to the policy department instead to the cultural programs. Also since this is a very small office there are very small possibilities of growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no actual HR department which unfortunately allows certain situations to go unresolved (like verbally abusive bosses). There should be annual reviews (never did one while I was there).

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Americas Society/Council of the Americas.

    Interview Details

    Had an informal interview with a departmental director, who invited me to work for a week. This would be a trial for both of us, and I would be paid hourly for my time. Work was very simple and my tech skills (which to me are sharp) were seen as semi-god like (they're not too savvy in general). Got employed the very next day.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficulty as it was very informal and the person interviewing is not a talent acquisition pro (nobody there is a talent acquisition pro, by the way---keep that in mind. That's probably why so many people are not very good at their job----upper management likes them, so....)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was an hourly pay and non-negotiable due to budget constraints.
