    I worked at World Resources Institute

    Pros

    Fast-paced, international work at the forefront of global climate policy. Very talented staff, most people are an absolute pleasure to work with. It's definitely improving in terms of organizational structure.

    Cons

    HR and finance/admin is a bit of a nightmare to deal with. Had to fight them for weeks to get my paychecks right, which is tough as an intern. No benefits, low wage. Staff is currently crammed into the office (although it will be expanding soon).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your interns at a fair rate. While it could definitely be worse, other think tanks of similar size are paying more and including benefits. And consider making the default internship period longer. There's not much you can get done in 3 months.
