    Awesome mission, great projects, but not necessarily a good place to build a career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    I have been working at National Democratic Institute


    Pros: NDI works at the intersection of politics and international development. If you are an activist and believe in helping build democratic… Cons: The downside is that, if you are working at headquarters and your job title doesn't include the word "director," you may find a lot… Advice to Senior Management: NDI has stellar and dedicated employees in headquarters who often leave out of frustration. The frequency of exceptions… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    I worked at National Democratic Institute


    Pros: Paid internships! Youll meet tons of interesting people. Travel is… Cons: All the work of a full time person (including the hours!) but none of the trust. Opportunities for advancement present, but elusive. … Advice to Senior Management: Help your people grow, dont treat interns and project assistants… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
