    I worked at DNC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mission, building people. Meet a lot of interesting political figures. I started there at college and it was the most amazing how the team came together as quickly as it did with the wide variety of experiences.

    Cons

    Tendency to keep on under performing staff as favors to the DNC members. Lots of turnover due to chair transitions limits the institutional memory of the place outside of HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give less control to the DNC members, it makes it more difficult to work.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, in the heart of politics in DC. Located on the House side and in close proximity to the Capitol.

    Cons

    To get promoted must leave and come back. A lot of different directors over the years, changing leadership and focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize achievement and promote from within.

    Pros

    Office culture, fun place to work, great benefit plan

    Cons

    Work life balance, base compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to add a greater degree of work/life balance. Not so reliant on managers being hands on presence for everything, but empowering supervisors/jr. managers to hold accountability & decision making

    Loved every second of it.

    I worked at DNC

    Pros

    Great people, great job. Loved working with people who want to change the world. Woke up every day to new, interesting challenges. You might even meet a famous person in the elevator.

    Cons

    Working on an election can be hard, however, it's ultimately rewarding. Be prepared to have a crisis happen when you least expect it--that's the reality of living in a 24 hour news cycle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rocking it, Debbie!

    I worked at DNC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Passionate people, committed to improving the country and supporting the President. Everybody is on the same page and is willing to work crazy hours to get things done.

    Cons

    I really wish I could have gotten paid. There's a travel stipend, but it doesn't go far enough to help students who are interning there.
