    I worked at Environmental Defense as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The EDF climate corps fellowship gives graduate students an excellent opportunity to affect change at major companies and organizations around the country

    Cons

    The application process was very drawn out and slightly disorganized. More communication between the submission of the application and the first interview would have been helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from paper mail fundraising. It might work for now, but it comes across as hypocritical and it's more outdated than the fundraising staff thinks.
