    Pros

    You can make it whatever you want it to be. Red tape should be no surprise, but overall supportive

    Cons

    Red tape is always going to be an issue!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Institute (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    First, I was asked to complete a phone interview with the HR person. This was fairly straightforward. Then I was brought in for an in-person interview with all four members of the Development Team. For the final round, I was brought in for one more in-person interview where I also spoke with members of the Executive Team.
