Very rewarding experience. Excellent exposure to the legislative process.

Congressional Intern (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsIt is very intriguing to see everything at work on Capitol Hill, especially the hearings. You get a very good sense on how everything comes together. You are also working with colleagues who are both very well educated and very dedicated to their careers.

ConsApparently, one of the down sides to working in Congress would be the long hours. Be prepared to work a very demanding schedule as a Hill staffer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
