    I have been working at Brookings Institution full-time

    Pros

    Great support from management, open door policy, respectful and diverse community. Excellent benefits and work/life balance. Supportive and family-like atmosphere.

    Cons

    None. I have not experienced anything negative at Brookings. I've heard some but since I did not experience it personally, I won't comment.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Interview

    I interviewed with the person in charge of the Center for Middle East Policy because that was the internship that I applied for. She asked me a bunch of normal interview questions, it's very cut throat institution because it is so prestigious. They are definitely looking for older/more experienced people
