    Full of new experiences and great people.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is one of the best and biggest think tanks in the world. You are working with great people. There are great opportunities to get your foot in the ground and stay in Washington, D.C. if that is your ultimate goal.

    ConsThey did not articulate well some of the intern privileges.

    A great place for committed conservatives

    Assistant Director (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsHeritage is a great place for those looking to help further the conservative movement. It is very purpose driven -- at all times -- and values those who want to advance the cause.

    In terms of work environment, it's very family friendly with normal hours in a city where that can be rare --- folks go home at 5:00, and they leave their work behind.

    ConsThere is some challenge with career advancement at Heritage, mostly due to the fact that people in higher positions of management typically don't leave.

    Must Have Internship

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThe Heritage Foundation is really one of the best places to intern, if you are a conservative. It is more than just an intership, but rather, a place to learn more about the conservative movement. You meet some very important people, such as former Cabinet members and prominent scholars. There is free lunhc most days, if you attend one of the scheduled events (not a bad tradeoff). The staff really seems to appreciate the interns, and doesn't look at them as a necessary evil.

    ConsDepending on whch department you were in, you were either swamped or had little to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to shift interns to other departments if there is less work in the one they are in.

    Excellent Internship

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ConsIntern work; but that's to be expected. It's paid, but very little.

    Culture

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThe people are so wonderful, the benefits are great, they love to promote and you will know everyone in Washington.

    ConsThe new organization Heritage Action has lost some credibility on the Hill because they are tough on members that are not as 'conservative' on votes. That has created some tension.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire within!
