    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

    Pros

    In my view WRI is the world's leading environmental think tank. The staff are top of their respective fields, the management is dynamic, and I personally feel great pride in having shared a portion of my professional life with such dedicated and intelligent colleagues.

    Cons

    The workload is heavy, the stress of working for a non-profit can be high, and the travel schedule can be brutal if not managed properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimize transaction costs where possible (particularly the number of meetings) and enhance the number of unrestricted grants to minimize fundraising pressures.
