    Pros

    The scholars were incredible, and I loved my coworkers. There was also a wonderful program for young professionals to gain more skills.

    Cons

    All in all, it was a great experience, but my internship was unpaid (which can be difficult in DC) and I heard that Research Assistants make a relatively low wage. Furthermore, I thought about coming back to work as an RA, but unfortunately, though they tend to like their jobs straight out of school, there is not much opportunity for career growth.

    An amazing experience with a diverse group of brilliant, diverse people coming together to solve world problems.

    Pros

    Exposure to many different issues, people, topics and opportunities. They like hiring from within and the internship program is regarded are very prestigious. Interns are treated the same as employees and are given their own tasks and projects throughout their time there.

    Cons

    It can be very long hours and research-heavy. Expect to clock a solid amount of hours and be able to handle a deadline work environment
