    I worked at National Democratic Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to learn a lot of marketable skills (budget monitoring, report editing, liaising with field offices, etc). However, the different responsibilities are highly contingent on what team you are placed on.

    Cons

    Mostly administrative work. There isn't a lot of opportunity to engage in more substantial writing or research. There also aren't a lot of open positions within the organization at a higher level, so it's difficult to move out of the Program Assistant position (even if you wait around for a while).

    Advice to Management

    Offer Program Assistants more programmatic and less administrative work. Offer more opportunities for Program Assistants to receive skills training that would help them move up within the organization (or elsewhere).
