Pros

A good career advancing job for people interested in politics. So far it is very well expected around Washington DC and hooked up with some great orgs.

Cons

It is only a year long position and it can be tough to find something to do at the end of the program.

Advice to Management

So far so good. It is a good program. Would do again.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Charles Koch Institute and Charles Koch Foundation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues - 95%+ of employees are fantastic at what they do and everyone cares deeply about our vision
    Great work environment - there's a positive and energetic sense to the place, and even when something goes wrong, it's handled pragmatically with an eye towards future improvement
    Strong sense of fulfillment from knowing the organization values your efforts
    Great feedback culture helps you grow your skills
    The organization is always adapting to new challenges, so your time is never wasted

    Cons

    It's chaotic. It took a long time before I could confidently say I understood the organizational structure around me. There are sometimes missed opportunities everyone doesn't know what everyone else is doing. But for an organization of our size, we do a good job building bridges across teams to improve collaboration.

    There is hardly ever a moment to breathe. We like to "sprint the marathon," which means there's always more to do with a high sense of urgency.
