    I worked at Johns Hopkins University

    Pros

    academic neutrality because associated with Johns Hopkins University; attracts senior European officials to US for discussion; very well connected within the US government as well; for the small budget they operate on, they're able to do a lot;

    Cons

    take on too much for such a small office, which makes working environment stressful and disorganized; work is not appreciated by supervisors, who each work on their own project in a very disconnected manner

    Pros

    You can actually do your homework and earn money at the same time, which is awesome for a Hopkins student, considering our work load and life style.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a summer internship and networking like crazy, student monitor is probably not a good job it took a huge amount of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably fragmentize time blocks from 4 hours to 2 hours
