    Pros

    You're working for the best civil rights organization in the country. There are so many pros about working there, but above all, it's an amazing place for a civil rights litigator.

    Cons

    Because it's a civil rights organization located in the South, if you're uninterested in living in South it might not be the best fit. Still, as someone from another part of the country, working for SPLC superseded any apprehension about living in the South.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
