    I worked at Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs

    Pros

    The Bureau's International Visitor Leadership Program facilitates important exchanges with emerging world leaders in a variety of fields and encourages open discourses that are key to building mutual trust and understanding between the people of the US and other countries. All of the Program Officers and Program Coordinators at the Bureau are dedicated and passionate about international exchanges.

    Cons

    There was a lack of consequences for an older male employee who repeatedly used his position of power to belittle multiple younger women working in the office.

    Advice to Management

    The Bureau is doing important work and I feel honored that I had the opportunity to intern there. However, I hope that in the future there will be a better support system in place for the more vulnerable employees, especially if there are no consequences for employees who abuse their position of power in their interactions with their female colleagues.

    Cons

    The major issue with the company is the management team. While young creative professionals are hired, their limited to the opportunity for growth. Furthermore they are limited to opinions and wording on project pitch.

    Advice to Management

    While the company was a great place, the main issue lies within management. Places to improve especially is People Management.
