I can not think of any cons about working at CI
The process took a week. I interviewed at Conservation International in July 2008.
Applied for job and got an email back requesting a phone interview. We had the standard questions - why are you interested in this job, your work experience, etc.. This phone interview was only with one person - the coordinator of the team that I would be working with. That was successful and they asked me in for a second, in person panel interview, which consisted of the core members of the team. Pretty relaxed - it seemed like the second interview was mostly for finding out about my personality, interacting with me in person, and seeing my body language in addition to my answers for the interview questions.
I was able to negotiate for a minimally higher salary but I shot myself in the foot because I made it very clear that I was going to be taking this job even if they did not increase the salary. Also only had one round of negotiations - felt like I could have negotiated harder. Negotiations also probably depend on the time of year - if it's early or late in the fiscal year (June), then you can probably negotiate better because they're either developing the budget or they have a full pot to work from.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
