I worked at Pacific Council on International Policy as an intern (Less than a year)
The staff is all very tightly knit, and they really take care of their interns. The office is extremely friendly, and while everyone is always busy, they'll take the time to get to know you.
None really - small stipend, but that's more than is available at most internships/jr. fellowships.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Council on International Policy (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.
Over 200 applications; they phone-interviewed 20 people, then invited about 10-12 for an in-person interview, then about 5 or so to interview with the Vice Presidents. The phone interview was very broad, more of a screening. The in-person was more targeted, but still no hard-ball questions. After the initial application submission, there was also a writing sample and an "assignment" to mimic the work of the job.
