Stressful but rewarding

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsGood coworkers, always something to do, you run in to a lot of politicians, sometimes the President comes by, right next to metro, focus on getting things done, everyone agrees with your politics

ConsHectic work environment, unpredictable hours, long-term employment subject to elections, non-profit salaries, decreasing benefits

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
