Featured Review

Former Employee - Assistant Staff

I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Freedom of an academic environment without the pressure to publish or find grants. Great group leaders that encourage staff growth and side projects.

Cons

Can be a bit slow-moving like its government customers.

Current Intern - Talent Programs

I have been working at Kiva for less than a year

Pros

- Great transparency - The org really does everything they can to make this internship beneficial for you - The Kiva community is vast and inclusive. You'll immediately feel like a part of the... family. - The folks working at Kiva are incredibly well-rounded and come here with a wealth of knowledge and experience in a variety of fields. It's a great place to build your network.

Cons

It can be difficult living off of a stipend, so it's important to consider why you're applying for this position. If your priority is to gain experience and knowledge, then this is a great... opportunity! The internship is really what you make of it. Everyone is willing to make time for you and chat with you, but you have to put in the effort to ask.
