I have been working at Center for Strategic and International Studies as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The internship is heavily research-focused, with maybe 5-10% of administrative work. There are always lots of events going in in many different subject areas, so you can learn about a variety of issues and the program coordinators are usually pretty cool about letting you go to whatever events you want. There is a good intern development/internship program (AILA) that provides lunch once or twice a week.

Cons

The internship is unpaid, though they do give $60 a month in metro cards
