I worked at National Geographic full-time (More than a year)
Amazing coworkers, entry level jobs started with 19+ days vacation time (though I think this policy has been drastically limited in 2017), inspiring mission, exciting networking opportunities
Leadership is often in flux, there's a constant struggle between the non-profit and for-profit entities, new leadership cares little about the employees
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Geographic (Washington, DC) in August 2016.
Quick and efficient. They were looking to fill the position fast due to need. I was called in and interviewed 2 rounds in 2 weeks. I was called into the office, and met with the head of the department. The entire conversation was casual, nothing too stressful. They are very personable at NGC. The second round was with two employees an it was similar to the first round. Just general questions about working style, adapting to a changing environment, and television.
