    I worked at Aspen Institute as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as an intern with the development team at the Aspen office. I was valued as a colleague by my superiors, asked to do challenging work, and expected to be comfortable interacting with the incredible donor base. I gained valuable business development experience, while also benefitting from the intellectually exhilarating environment. The office culture is positive and energetic, and compensation is more than fair for a college internship. I highly recommend working here.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons. I guess the hours did get a bit demanding at times, but that was a pro for me because I loved my job so much.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Aspen Institute in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an unexpected phone call from the Aspen Institute. My interviewer claimed it was a "pre-screen," yet he was asking me interview questions. He did not ask if this was a good time to speak and did not schedule the phone call with me.

    Interview Questions
    • The entire phone call interview was unexpected. I expect more professional etiquette from employers to schedule any form of interview rather than putting a potential candidate on the spot.   Answer Question
