    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Great benefits including health/dental/vision insurance, transportation assistance, basic life insurance, 5 weeks of vacation (2.5 of which can be carried over each year) and 12% contribution towards retirement. The only downside is the retirement doesn't kick in until after 2 years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Very generous paid time off policy-- 5 weeks vacation and 3 weeks of sick pay plus federal holidays

  • Dec 27, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Great time off at a total of 5 weeks possible to accrue per year plus most federal holidays. This benefit is accrued hourly per number of days worked from day one, so it is possible to earn 16 and some hours or about 2 days per month, typically. Fair sick leave, family/maternity leave policy, employee assistance program, and health + vision + dental insurance as well as Metro SmartBenefits for transportation are able to opt in at time of employment. Retirement Plan and limited tuition assistance possible after a certain amount of time working there. Possible to get discounts for Gym memberships.

    The benefits package was ok, but you won't get the retirement plan until 2 years employment.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Intern in Washington, District of Columbia

    Worst: Intern, no pay. Best: Access to Brookings resources, free events, free database and library.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Intern in Washington, District of Columbia

    I didn't receive a benefits package being an intern, but usually those who work get amazing benefits including a vacation package.

    Salary is competitive. After two years, Brookings begin to contribute 12% of your salary to a retirement account. Also, they offer 5 weeks of vacation per year.
