    I worked at World Resources Institute as an intern

    Pros

    Excellent network of fellow interns, fun workplace environment, emphasis on sharing ideas across the organization and learning.

    Cons

    Definitely a large office, sometimes you can get lost in the number of interns and projects going on. It is important to remain proactive.

    I worked at World Resources Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    mission driven org, chances to work on different projects and interact with colleagues with diverse backgrounds
    good benefits including paid time off and healthcare coverage. etc. a place you can do something influential and make real impacts if you have the expertises and the will/ambition

    Cons

    WRI is still maturing and I would say the Hr doesn't funtion as it suppose to be. it's a bit messy within the org when it comes to responsiblity assignment, performance based valuation on lower level. more senior level management is fine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lack of professional training and doesn't have good mentorship system. the HR and the accounting department work independently and separately in fields/ occasions that collaborations are necessary.
    lack of real expertise capacity in junior level to back up policy and research work
