I worked at APCO Worldwide part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Actually work on client accounts, some client interaction. The work is sometimes very meaningful, as the firm works with a wide variety of clients, including corporate, government, and nonprofits.

Cons

Work gets monotonous, definite sense of hierarchy at the company. Sometimes the work gets pretty monotonous, can seem like a lot of endless internet searching. Pay is good for an internship but is pretty paltry compared to the profits made off of interns.

Advice to Management

Intern policies in general are much more developed than other internships, but still could use a bit more structure.

    smart group of people, many of whom have been with the company for a decade or more. collegial working environment and interesting mix of client projects. global firm with generally consistent caliber of people across global offices.

    Cons

    tends to be very hierarchical and 'old school'. through a recent period of growth, the company has not always remained true to its core expertise in policy and grassroots work.

    Advice to Management

    be careful to preserve the quality of work and value proposition of the company - don't become everything to everyone
