I worked at AEI full-time for more than a year

Pros

As a research assistant your colleagues are all young, intelligent, and professional people. You also get to work closely with the scholars with is worth a masters degree in and of itself. There are a lot of perks to working there: free books, free lectures, an amazing in-house dining room, free cookies every Friday

Cons

Some scholars as their research assistants to do menial tasks like putting money in their parking meter or have them go pick up their laundry. This isn't widespread and the management typically clamps down if they hear about it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    AEI is one of the leading think tanks in dc but along with the amazing scholars you have to deal with some very biased opinions

    Cons

    You will find yourself disagreeing with some of your co workers, who are often better paid and far more influential than you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns at AEI perform more substantiating work than interns at competing think tanks, and this is certainly a perk of working there
