    I have been working at Council on Foreign Relations full-time

    Pros

    CFR offers an amazing opportunity to work in foreign affairs. It has great perks, including getting to listen in to meetings with foreign policy leaders and academic scholars, educational stipends, and generous leave time.

    Cons

    Advancement is often tied to how long you've worked at the Council, not to performance. Salaries are not high, but it is a non-profit.
