    Excellent benefits packages and great, smart, interesting colleagues.

    No real ladder up from the junior levels - you have to leave the Institution and get more experience elsewhere.

    Create an alumni network so Brookings employees feel more connected to the Institution after they leave.

    Pros

    It's possible to get a chance to work on really interesting projects and see how a big think tank functions. It's cool to see how they rank their priorities, and attend some of their events.

    Cons

    The different offices don't necessarily interact with each other, making the organization somewhat siloed. Also the visible credit (bylines, acknowledgements) you get for your work depends on who you're working with.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to have a standardized system for giving interns writing credit and things to do.
