    I worked at Brookings Institution part-time

    Pros

    Contacts, access to high-profile meetings, interesting conversations with senior staff. Brown bag lunches on the foreign policy side for informative discussion on current events.

    Cons

    Unpaid, often administrative-focused work. There tends to be a foreign policy vs. domestic policy divide at the organization, too.

    Advice to Management

    Take the leap and pay interns! Will put your organization even more ahead of the competition

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Brookings Institution as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Frequent lectures/panels with leading figures; interesting projects that get extensive news coverage once published

    Cons

    Little-to-no skills training--formal or informal--for interns; employees seemed to actively avoid connecting with interns (justifiable, considering that the organization churns through some 140 interns annually); interns often stuck performing low-level work
