"Overall good experience as an intern"

I worked at American Institutes for Research as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Management made an effort to welcome the interns. The location on K Street makes commuting easier since it's close to a few Metro stops. I was given a lot of autonomy on my assignment working with a client.

Cons

There seemed to be a culture of gossip among the workers, upper management is not well-respected among junior-level workers.
