    Pros

    Very relaxed and friendly culture. Reasonable pay scale, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    There is some bureaucracy as with any larger company, even though it's a non-profit, which can be annoying to deal with. Almost all funding is from the government so federal budget issues can make continued employment tumultuous.

  2. Great learning experience as an intern

    I worked at East-West Center as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Very versatile assignments around the office
    -Interaction with senior employees
    -People are friendly and willing to help

    Cons

    -sometimes disorganized/ not enough tasks to do in the office but I think that this has changed. Otherwise I had a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Create an internship program that is more structured and allows interns to take initiative. This will make the program run smoothly for everyone. Many of the projects were less immersed in the field and administrative. Because the internship is unpaid, it would be helpful for more projects that will improve skills learned in the classroom. The people are great!
