Pros

Scholars who are like professors at university Access to numerous events, books, articles Provide resume reviews, mock interviews, intern meetings occasionally Gourmet-like free lunch for interns everyday! (Free breakfast as well -- bagels, special K cereals, naked juice, chobani, fresh fruits etc)

Cons

Non-paid Extremely competitive and almost impossible to get a full time offer for interns

Advice to Management

I wished they would pay for our metro fees at least..:)

    Pros

    Good vacation time, management leaves you alone most of the time to do your work

    Cons

    Dysfunctional company with 1960s mentality. Still use typewriters and word perfect. Only recently bought a scanner for one of their employees. Top two managers are in competition with each other to run the company, and all innovative ideas get quickly squashed by arrogance. Company is moving backwards, not forwards. Extremely dry sponge in need of any drop of water.

    Advice to Management

    not even worth it, they won't listen anyway.


  2. Excellent place to work, great place to meet insightful thinkers

    Pros

    Great people, great opportunities. AEI is an excellent place for policy, economics, and some social interests. Of all the think tanks in DC, it's the least political and dorky.

    Cons

    Low comp. There's no reason to work here just for the pay. Pay will be extremely low, but you wouldn't take this job for that. It's to meet great people and work on ideas that make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work
