    I worked at American Civil Liberties Union

    Pros

    The ACLU plays a very important political and legal role in this country. I was always proud to say I worked there, especially in the wake of 9/11. Also, they have a nap room.

    Cons

    There is a continuing misery among much of the staff. The higher-ups claim to care about you as a person and your professional development, but they don't. Anthony Romero is a charlatan -- the whole place went downhill after Ira Glasser left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and forthright with your employees -- and with the board members. Show loyalty to your long-term employees, who have built the organization with their sweat and tears. Remember that the ACLU is worth more than the biggest Ford Foundation grant.

    I worked at American Civil Liberties Union as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Working as a law clerk for the ACLU was an incredible experience. I learned more about the law, civil rights and civil liberties from working there than I did in law school.

    Cons

    Demanding amount of work especially if you are a current student. However, they were cooperative with any conflicting school schedules and especially understanding during final examinations.
