    Pros

    The DC office has a bunch of awesome protest signs everyone, everyone very progressive and cares about the causes. My impression was of a workplace that respected and advocated for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Office has a very open floor plan, so when making phone calls or coworkers having conversations, things could get loud/distracting. Work was sometimes stressful due to caring about the issues/being on a tight schedule to follow Congress.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sierra Club (Oakland, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    40 minutes over google hangout or phone. Fourteen resumes chosen from hundreds of applicants. Within days of interviewing everyone, called up everyone to let them know if they were selected or not and explained why or why not. Very considerate and professional.
