    I worked at National Geographic as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    National Geographic is one of the most enriching organizations I've ever worked with personally, or been a part of. The workplace is fun, encouraging, and structured for the best results. The amount of researchers, explorers, and creatives that give presentations at NatGeo in any given year is truly awe-inspiring, and there's much to be learned from their experiences and findings in the field.

    Cons

    After a period of time, the politics of the company, but not necessarily within the departments, become apparent – but what organization doesn't have politics roaming around its halls?

    I have been working at National Geographic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work hours, great vacation days and sick days, access to amazing speakers and events, fantastic work environment

    Cons

    The HR department is very old fashioned, and the pay is low.. even for a non-profit.

    Advice to Management

    The pay for my position at Nat Geo is 60% of the average salary for my position in D.C. That's a high price to pay to like your job.
