Internship worth the time

I worked at Resources For The Future as an intern

Pros

Inside look into one of, if not the, highest-rated environmental NGOs in the US. If you're into public/environmental/health policy, this is a good opportunity.

Cons

Nearly every researcher is a PhD economist, can't complement their communication skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

(I was an intern - not an insider, not an expert, not a multi-year employee. Also, wasn't here in 2011, year invented to protect anonymity.)
