    Pros

    Brand name
    Celebrity A-list backers
    Noble mission
    Modern offices
    Office events

    Cons

    You could be doing something very easy and very boring/repetitive; or,
    you could be doing everyone else's very fast-paced challenging work that gets shrugged onto you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See who's necessary and who is not

    I worked at Oceana as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of variety in my work, which was nice for a 3-month internship. Employees were excited and enthusiastic about their work.

    Cons

    I liked my boss but my only complaint work was not evenly distributed throughout my 3 months of work: I was assigned nearly no projects in the beginning, and ended up having to do a lot of catch-up at the end of the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was here for so little time that I did not get a sense, but I did really like my immediate boss.
