    Pros

    Public Agenda is typically comprised of a very smart group of people who are for the most part charitably motivated.

    Cons

    The management is quite dysfunctional and communications could use major improvement. The current style seems to treat employees as interchangeable widgets, despite the fact that this is a service organizations.

    Pros

    PA does exciting, important work. There are often a few projects going on at one time, so it is hard to get bored. In addition the small size of the organizations allows people to learn how to handle many aspects of a project you might not in larger organizations.

    Cons

    For some, a small organization might not work, and the workload could be a bit much if you don't have prior experience.
