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

Pros

As an intern in National Geographic, I still gained a lot of nice benefits from the internship. The company asked interns to travel in some other cities in Washington DC to promote their projects. And they paid for hotels, rental cars, and meals if an intern went on a business trip. They have a lot of awesome activities for interns to participate. The staffs here were highly connected with the interns. They hosted small seminars to listen to what interns think about the company, what they want, and how they understand the culture in the company. As there is an annual Explorer Symposium in Nat Geo, you can meet a lot of explorers, scientists, and artists during your internship. It is a great place to explore your career and build your connection.

Cons

They don't sponsor H1B.
