I have been working at Center for Strategic and International Studies full-time (More than a year)
Great experience and organizational culture, access to experts and ability to have a direct impact on foreign policy issues. Many aspects of the job vary depending on the program you work for.
Can be high stress at times, and pay is not always commensurate with amount of responsibility. The nature of the think tank environment means that there is not a lot of opportunity to advance which results in high turnover at lower levels within the organization.
I applied online. I interviewed at Center for Strategic and International Studies (Washington, DC).
After applying online I received an email reaching out to set up a phone interview. The interview was cancelled via email shortly before it was supposed to begin, and the interviewer requested an alternate time to speak. I never heard from the interviewer again.
