Excellent DC think tank

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

One the best places in DC to research international public policy. Very pro student. Excellent food options. Gorgeous interior. Great library. Policy and area researches are top notch.

Cons

Intern tasks can become monotonous. Interns need to be aware of this and actively communicate with their mentors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

if unpaid internship, please at least provide a transportation stipend.

    Former Program Assistant

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, very friendly and interesting
    Smart people all around, Scholars are college professors, journalists, and former govt. officials
    Chance to meet and work with influential individuals and organizations
    Easy work/life balance, rarely asked to work long or odd hours if working the program side

    Cons

    As with other "think tanks" there is little to no advancement, if you work on the program side you are either under 30 or over 50
    High turnover, but again this is how think tanks operate, you work there for a couple of years at most and then move on to graduate school or another position

    They were highly unorganized. Highly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better idea of what you want out of your interns, and set more firm deadlines.
