    I worked at Environment America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked as a fellow and advocate for Environment America. I got great training from other advocates and campaigners who had been working on environmental issues for 5-10 years, and was able to take on more responsibility each year. I was able to educate the public on environmental issues, meet with legislators to advocate for better environmental policies on behalf of our members, and meet with our members to talk about...

    Cons

    Not really a negative for me, but may not work for some people: You can have a lot of responsibility at a young age, which can mean a lot of work.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Environment America part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you have a pulse you'll be hired.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

In this day and age canvassing especially at night is too dangerous and it's honestly a miracle you haven't gotten anyone killed.
