Excellent practical experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsRelevant, exciting, important work. Co-workers were bright, hard-working, and (surprisingly) young. Teamwork encouraged. Lots of professional opportunities. My office's Director was very active with the employees and interns and always knew what was going on and what needed to be done.

ConsCan be slow-moving and bureaucratic. Internship was unpaid. Different bureaus feel like completely different companies--mine was excellent, but have heard horror stories from others.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
