Former Intern - Multimedia Intern in Washington, DC

I worked at NPR as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

One of the best working environments I've been in! Fantastic co-workers with a lot of knowledge and willingness to share career advice. It does pay unlike a lot of media internships. I was treated like a full-time employee, not an intern. I was given real work -- no fetching coffee!

The coffee machines in the kitchens are a lifesaver.

It's NPR!

Cons

The monthly stipend is pretty bad, which made it difficult to find housing for the internship period. I also worked way more than 40 hours a week, which could be a pro or con to some, but I wish I was paid overtime (your stipend stays the same no matter how many hours you put in.)

Wish I had opportunities for employment at the end of the internship. Don't expect a job at the end.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more interns! We dedicate an enormous amount of time and energy to the company. I just wish interns had the opportunity to move up instead of heading to another company praying for a job.

    I worked at NPR as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    -The talent, the atmosphere, the culture.

    Cons

    -Not really a con, but NPR is a nonprofit, so you won't get the big salaries like in other news organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep what you're doing and that is bring informative news.

    The management direction always seems to be shifting but they produce great news and the organization is focused on that

    I have been working at NPR full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good work-life balance, you can feel great about working there. The new building is awesome and you take the metro to work

    Cons

    Some managers are out of their depth, the highest level of management is always revolving and it's a distraction. Management changes and actions shouldn't ever make "news".
