    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at World Wildlife Fund as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    smart, friendly, approachable people
    regular brownbag presentations from leading researchers
    solid work-life balance

    Cons

    non-profit pay. don't work in non-profit if you want to get rich.
    many programs are driven by grants and funding. if your funding dries up you will have to move on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a better internal talent pool, like a consultancy, to allow employees to pivot between projects if necessary
