    I worked at The Fund for the Public Interest full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Fund gives you a ton of responsibility right away. I use the skills I developed here in every cover letter, interview, etc. And the time and stress management practice was great prep for graduate school. And you get to say at the end of the day that you're working on an issue you care about with a passionate team of people. Also, they had the best healthcare insurance package I've seen yet. I didn't have to pay anything extra, and all of my medical visit copay's were $10, including psychotherapy.

    Cons

    Long work hours in a high-stress environment for very little pay. Some people also get pretty frustrated with management because there is little opportunity for sharing feedback and ideas with the higher-up's. You don't get any paid vacation aside from a few holidays until you've been there for a year, but many people don't stay long enough to reap those benefits. It's nearly impossible to have a personal life or family with this job, because the work commitment is so intense.
