    I worked at International Rescue Committee as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part of working for free/interning were the many opportunities to get involved with different types of work. The office is constantly busy, so there is definitely lots to do! Even though I hate to admit it, at times the work got dull, but depending on who you work for there could be room to seek mentorship, take a longer lunch, or help out in a different part of the office during those really dull days.

    Cons

    None, except not much room to move up to a hired/paid position unless you speak one of the key languages in the office.

    I have been working at International Rescue Committee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees that work here are great coworkers
    The organization is innovative for a large NGO
    People are open and there are lots of opportunities to learn about others roles
    They have really strong benefits for an NGO. Lots of vacation days, 403b match, pretty good healthcare

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up within the organization. There is so much competition that you often have to leave and come back in order to make yourself qualified for a more senior position.
