    I worked at World Vision International as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Professional development opportunities
    Unified by beautiful, global vision
    International teams and multicultural experiences
    Commitment to values

    In my six months there, I got a wonderful glimpse into a cool organizational culture.

    Cons

    Compensated with stipend
    "Multi-denominational" can lead to passive aggression or ecclesiological disagreements
    The size of the organization can slow down decision-making, and little tasks can get lost in the scope of work.
    Multinational work has its challenges: Skype calls at 3AM are among them!

    Negotiation Details
    Salary was a primary concern - they don't have much to give (being a non-profit). Awesome benefits - almost makes up for the low salary. Justify your pay by listing benefits to the organization.
