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 Management

(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.)

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment. All the people I worked with were very pleasant and friendly. Good benefits (health insurance, retirement plan, cafeteria plan, vacation).

    Cons

    Resources for the Future is a small organization therefore there are not too many opportunities for the career advancement and growth.


  2. Une compagnie publique classique. Classic public company

    Pros

    Environnement décontracté, salariés passionnés et bon mélange de jeunes et de personnes expérimentées. En général, tout le monde est bien préparé pour son travail. Bonne situation géographique dans la ville.

    Relaxed environment, people with lot of passion and a good mix of young and experienced employees. In general people are well prepared for their job. Good geographic placement in the city.

    Cons

    Comme dans toutes les compagnies publiques, il y a beaucoup d'inertie, tout met longtemps et tout le monde tente de déléguer un maximum de responsabilités aux autres.

    As all public companies it suffers of a inertia everything takes so long to be done and everyone tries to delagete at maximum responsibilities to others.

    Advice to Management

    Le directeur est incapable de gérer l'équipe, il y a beaucoup de frictions et beaucoup veulent partir.

    The senior Manager is completely unable to manage the team, lots of friction within the team and a lot of people that wants to leave.
